(WSVN) - Cameras were rolling on a school bus as a driver failed to stop for the school bus and nearly struck a child.

Minnesota State Patrol shared the video on Facebook with a clear message: “Motorists failing to yield to school buses are putting our kids at risk.”

A perfect example is shown in the video filmed in Wabasha County back in January, FOX 9 reported.

In it, the fourth grader is seen crossing the road when a speeding car is forced to make a sudden swerve to avoid hitting the child.

A survey conducted by 2,360 school bus drivers in the state reported 513 motorists passing illegally as they came toward the bus. Meanwhile, 112 motorists illegally passed from behind the bus.
