DENISON TX-- Roxanna Robbins has been staking out her son's school bus stop in Denison, using the camera on her cell phone to capture video of people who aren’t stopping for the bus.
She says is it is a dangerous situation.

"There needs to be a sign that says school bus children unloading or something that will make them aware to stop”, said Robbins.

Not stopping is more than dangerous, it is illegal

"Anytime you see the bus stopped and the lights on, you have to stop”, said Denison Police Lt. Mike Eppler.

The Denison Police Department says that most people do stop for school buses, and that they commonly patrol near bus stops.

Roxanna Robbins just wants drivers to realize that the life of a child far outweighs the two minutes you lose stopping for a school bus.

"Think about your kids, I mean if it were your kid getting off of that school bus would you want someone to stop and be aware of their safety?"said Robbins.

    How much is a ticket for "NOT STOPPING" for a school bus stop sigh? Share that fine amount in the school news letter. If a few dozen tickets were issued ,, word would get around.

    TO NO NAME: How is the maintenance director suppose to stop people from speeding thru a bus stop or a crossing guard? You kinda sound like a disgruntaled employee to me or a parent with a grudge.

    Way back when your bus was a wagon pulled by mules cars didn't drive so fast. I drive a bus and the cars go by so fast it is impossible to get their licence number
