Woman helps police by taking video of cars zooming past stopped school buses


WASHINGTON (CIRCA) — A woman's viral Facebook videos helped encourage police to get involved in ending speeding by school buses in her community.

Monica Douglas has been posting videos on Facebook throughout the month of cars not slowing down behind a school bus. In Florida, where Douglas lives, "any person using, operating, or driving a vehicle on or over the roads or highways of this state shall, upon approaching any school bus that displays a stop signal bring such vehicle to a full stop while the bus is stopped, and the vehicle shall not pass the school bus until the signal has been withdrawn," according to the AAA Digest of Motor Laws.

She sent the videos to the Pasco County Sheriff's Office, and it stepped up in response.

As a result, the police have been stationed at the intersection and making traffic stops to enforce the safety issue.

"I can't believe we made a difference," Douglas posted on Facebook.
