Every morning before sunrise, when the stars are still in the sky, Ralls Police Chief Steven Longoria makes a cup of coffee and heads out on the same route.
The chief follows behind a school bus as it picks up seven special needs kids around town.
“It started probably mid to last school year,” Chief Longoria said. “Actually Donavon’s mother and the actual school bus driver had reached out to me and told me a lot of people were not stopping for the red lights. And they just wanted to know if I could help keep an eye out.”
Since Chief Longoria started his new task, he said drivers no longer speed past the bus.
