Superintendent gets warning for passing school bus

MELBOURNE, Fla. (AP) — 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 one recent morning when he was stopped and given a warning.

A police spokeswoman says officers issued 115 tickets and 14 warnings for failure to stop for a school bus during the campaign.

Blackburn acknowledged he was one of the drivers who needed a reminder and thanked police for their work.

Florida law says vehicles traveling in both directions on an undivided roadway must stop for a stopped school bus.
