Stop Arm Violations in Warsaw Concerning WCS

(Source: License:

As the number of stop-arm violations continues to increase in the county, one
particular bus stop is very concerning to Warsaw Community Schools Director of
Transportation Mark Fick.

Wednesday, he brought his concerns and requests for a sign and camera near the bus stop in front of Papa John’s on Center Street to the Warsaw Traffic Commission. On WCS buses, he said they have between seven to eight cameras and a stop-arm camera on each bus on the outside.

Fick explained the process for ticketing stop-arm violators. The driver fills out a form and once Fick verifies it, it’s sent out to the prosecuting attorney. The prosecutor then issues a
ticket out to the city, county or town of Winona Lake to be issued to the driver.

Fick receives back notification that the citation was issued or the reason why it wasn’t.
