A video has gone viral of a mom cheering on a couple sheriff’s deputies pulling over a whole crowd of motorists for blowing past a stopped school bus.
A group of concerned mothers watched a sting operation Wednesday in Pasco County, Florida as a school bus pulled over on a busy boulevard and turned its flashing red lights on, indicating that children could be exiting the bus.
Monica Douglas, who recorded the operation, cheered as multiple drivers blew past the bus and were immediately stopped by two sheriff’s cars that pulled out to form a roadblock in front of them, according to local CBS affiliate WTVR.
“Get get ‘em, boys!’ she yelled enthusiastically. “Woooooo! Woooooo!”
“Haha! Haha! Enjoy those tickets!” she screamed as seven or eight cars passed the bus at full speed, only to be stopped a few hundred yards up the road.
“Thank you! Thank you, all of you!” Douglas hollered. “Go ahead, every one of you [expletives] who didn’t stop!”
“Keep going!” she jeered as several more cars inched past the bus while its red lights were still on. “That’s an [expletive] stop sign! Are you serious?! “
“Look at that!” she said as she swung her camera back to show the pulled over cars at the head of the pack. “Thank you so much, Pasco Sheriff’s officer, we appreciate you so very much!”
“You guys are doing running [over] these children. You’re going to stop for every [expletive] child. Thank you,” Douglas concluded.
See the video below, which received over 11 million views by Thursday afternoon:
A second video from one of the sheriff’s officers’ body cameras shows him stopping multiple cars within seconds and getting all of them to pull over to the side of the road at once. Douglas is cheering so loudly down the street that you can hear her on the body cam.
“Park on the side of the road,” he ordered each one. “Don’t move anywhere.”
Take a look at that video too:
“IT IS THE LAW to stop for stopped school buses,” the Pasco Sheriff’s Office reminded everyone on Facebook. “This is to protect the children who are unloading from the bus.”
