MANDAN, N.D. (AP) — The North Dakota Highway Patrol is bringing its "Trooper on a Bus" campaign to Mandan.

Troopers will ride on school buses Thursday to observe any traffic violations around the buses and radio the information to officers in squad cars to make traffic stops.

The goal of the program that's been used across the state in recent years is to boost safety when children are getting on and off school buses.

A motorist who fails to stop for a school bus can be fined $100. So can the registered owner of the vehicle.
