Ben Hill County Sheriff Bobby McLemore says his office is not going to show any leniency to people who illegally pass school buses who are stopped to pick up or drop off students.

The Sheriff's comments come four days after a Ben Hill County student was seriously injured when a tractor trailer hit her school bus.

Sheriff McLemore says his office will issue citations after reviewing video evidence from school bus cameras.

The Sheriff also says if you are issued a citation, don't call asking for some help.

there's no excuse to run past a school bus it bright yellow and has flashing red lights and a stop sigh extended and there's no reason you can give for running past that school bus.>
