Littlefork-Big Falls, MN- The Minnesota Department of Public Safety recently awarded $3.7 million to fund stop arm cameras statewide. Littlefork-Big Falls received about $38,000 for 13 cameras. The cameras will help enforce Stop Arm Violations and keep students safe. State law requires all vehicles to stop when a bus’ arm is down and lights are flashing. Minnesota bus drivers observed as many as a thousand violations in a day in 2022. Eastrange Academy in Eveleth also received funding for two cameras.
