WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — The West Lafayette Police Department placed bus stop signs  around a busy drop-off location for students.

They're on Yeager Road between Northwestern Ave. and Sagamore Parkway.

WLPD says it's to help continue the education of bus stop safety for motorists.

The signs are a reminder to stop for school bus stop signs.

They say, "All lanes stop for school bus red flashing lights."

WLDP said West Lafayette Community Schools asked for more awareness in that area and that includes putting the signs in other crowded school zones.

"Some of the areas we are going to look for are just where the schools have made us aware that they have seen problems or are concerned about those kinds of dangerous intersections," said Lt. David Lord.

No incidents have been reported in West Lafayette relating to drivers not stopping for school buses.
