Boca Raton police are cracking down on drivers not stopping for school buses. 

This happens after complaints about drivers speeding past a school bus when it's dropping off or picking up children. 

Officers now plan to stake out at school bus stops, ready to ticket drivers who fail to stop. 

"I have had experiences where drivers are tailing me and honking, I can't imagine they are being any more respectful to children that are on buses. I want people to drive around here like their children live here," said one resident. 

Boca Raton police plan to rotate through school zones to make sure bus stops are safe for children.
