WADSWORTH: Police Chief Randy Reinke informed City Council's Safety Committee Monday that a police officer rode one of the city's school buses as part of National School Bus Safety Week.
According to Reinke, the purpose of the officer on the bus was to watch for drivers of vehicles who refused to obey the regulations for a stopped school bus. A patrol car trailed the bus and one violator was cited.
Reinke said the police had not done this before, but are planning to do it more. Reinke said bus drivers file complaints and some fill out reports on drivers who do not obey the regulations. If a license plate number is obtained, the police will investigate the alleged violation, Reinke noted.
Committee Chairman Tim Eberling said he has had complaints from parents who report violations on Great Oaks Trail.
