Kristen Rieger was sick and tired of seeing careless drivers continuously blow past stopped school buses. She notified police in Pasco County, Florida, and, at one point, she ended up standing on the side of the road, all by herself, shouting at people to stop.
She knew it was dangerous, but she was more concerned about saving children from potential danger.
Another concerned mom joined Kristen in her fight. Monica Douglas documented the dangerous problem on her cellphone, then uploaded the videos to social media. “We’ve already lost innocent lives in Tampa and a couple other states, and I fear for those parents because a $275 ticket doesn’t bring their child back to life,” Monica told Fox 13.
By the next morning, the videos were viral — and local deputies decided to take major action.
It was another day of countless cars whizzing passed a stopped school bus along US 19… only this time, the drivers had no clue that sheriff’s deputies were waiting up ahead with a stack of citations.
Kristen was overwhelmed with the results, which you’re about to see. She and Monica loved nothing more than watching the violators being taught a valuable lesson.
