WATCH: MN State Patrol Posts Video of Elementary Child Nearly Getting Hit at Bus Stop

This is so scary.

The Minnesota State Patrol shared this video of a Zumbrota-Mazeppa Elementary School fourth-grader getting on her school bus this past January. And watch as the driver fails to yield for the school bus with its stop-arm extended and flashing lights activated.

These are the laws:


• Motorists must stop at least 20 feet from a school bus that is displaying red flashing lights or a stop arm when approaching from the rear and from the opposite direction on undivided roads.
• Motorists should slow down, pay attention and anticipate school children and buses, especially in neighborhoods and school zones.
• The best way to be aware of your surroundings at all times is to put the distractions away.
• Drivers can face criminal charges for passing a school bus on the right, passing when a child is outside the bus, or injuring or killing a child.
