MIDLAND COUNTY, TX (KWES) - It can be a busy and fast-paced road on 1788 in Midland and it also happens to also be a bus stop for a few MISD students.

Sheri Vallejo is the grandmother to an MISD student and she says that she wants her bus stop changed for the safety of her grandchild.

Local law enforcement say that they do patrol the area, but Thursday morning and afternoon they brought extra patrol units to the area.

A Midland County deputy said in the morning hours they issued about three citations, but in the afternoon all the vehicles stopped and no citations were given.

"Just to know that the presences is out here, you know even if it's not every day just so the people know that it is happening and that they need to be watching out for these buses," said Sheri Vallejo.

MISD also released this statement.  ?The safety of our students is our top priority. We understand that in order for our students to learn and thrive, they must be in a comfortable environment and feel safe.
