(Reading) -- Some Pennsylvania school buses will have more than just pupils on board.

The state police are conducting "Operation Safe Stop'' today.

The undercover operation is meant to crack down on drivers who illegally pass school buses, especially when they're picking up or dropping off students.

So troopers from the Reading barracks and others around the state will be riding the buses hoping to catch drivers in the act.

The Reading troopers will be riding buses in the Oley Valley and Daniel Boone school districts.

A ticket for passing a bus that has its flashing red lights on carries a $250 fine, a 60-day license suspension and five points against one's license.
