You may want to pay close attention to school buses on the roads come Monday.
State troopers will board some school buses in Texas as part of National School Bus Safety Week. DPS says they'll be watching for drivers who illegally pass school buses as children board them. Texas law requires drivers to stop for a school bus when the red lights are flashing. Violators face fines of up to a $1,000 dollars for breaking the law.
