New Traffic Funds For IN Cops

Dozens of Indiana police departments are getting a combined $380,000 to boost traffic enforcement at school bus stops and help impose new penalties for motorists who put children in danger by driving past them when stopped. The funding from the Indiana Criminal Justice Institute comes as children are heading back to school following the summer break. The grants, which will cover overtime enforcement for 39 police agencies over the next two months, include $49,975 for police in Fort Wayne. Indiana Gov. Eric Holcomb, says said Indiana police officers will be enforcing increased fines and penalties for drivers who recklessly pass bus stops and drive aggressively.
