State Troopers inspect FWCS's nearly 300-bus fleet before school begins
The new school year is just around the corner for Fort Wayne Communicant Schools.
To make sure kids can get to school without a hitch, specially-trained officers with the Indiana State Police inspect each and every school bus in the district's nearly 300-bus fleet. They make sure the vehicles are safe and in tip-top shape for students and their drivers. "They are looking for everything from headlights not working, making sure the break systems are working, making sure the buses start, seat belts work, exhaust system everything from front to back, making sure everything is working like it should be... And if it's not, the bus is not allowed to go out and pick up one student," ISP Sgt. Ron Galaviz said. More than 15,000 students within the district ride FWCS buses.
School begins Aug. 15, and officers want to remind you to stop for school buses when they are picking up or dropping off children.
