The report, Cameras on Abu Dhabi school buses to catch stop sign violations (KT, Sept 3) highlighted an important issue. It is true that some motorists blatantly disregard a stop sign and overtake the bus, which can and does result in mishaps. Safety of our children demands that motorists adhere to the rules. But there are a lot of misuses, as well. For instance, I have noticed school buses stopping on highways at times, which is not allowed in the first place. Authorities should be strict towards motorists, and keep the use of stop board by bus drivers under check.
