‘BUSted’: Superintendent gets warning for passing school bus


Authorities say a Florida superintendent was pulled over for illegally passing a school bus as police were running a bus safety campaign. Florida Today reports that Superintendent of Brevard Public Schools Desmond Blackburn was driving his district-issued SUV the morning of March 27 when he was stopped and given a warning. Melbourne police had increased patrols around school buses from Feb. 26 until March 29 as part of “Operation BUSted.” A police spokeswoman says officers issued 115 tickets and 14 warnings for failure to stop for a school bus during the campaign.
