When it comes to distracted driving, police officers are always trying to find ways to enforce the law discretely, so that they may catch drivers while being distracted.
Many drivers are oblivious of how distracted driving can impact them directly. And because they act as if nothing could happen to them, they often try to pass as rule followers when they see officers. But once troopers are out of sight, these drivers carry on with their distracted driving activities, often putting their own lives and the lives of others in jeopardy.
In certain areas of the country, police are using school buses to crack down on distracted driving behavior.
By climbing on school buses, officers are concealing themselves in order to look for distracted drivers away from their sight.
The strategy, these local law enforcers say, works. They often catch about 10 distracted drivers per hour.
Every year, distracted driving kills thousands of people across the country. When drivers are distracted, they are often incapable of responding promptly when there’s an emergency ahead. As a result, accidents will occur and people will be injured.
The fact officers are using school buses makes yet another point, as distracted drivers can cause a great deal of damage around school children if they are not paying attention. If drivers are aware that school buses may be carrying officials who are on the lookout for them, they may be more careful in the future.
