The Tennessee Highway Patrol is busy conducting school bus inspections to make sure every bus in the state is safe.

Trooper Chris Hannah said they are looking for anything, from seat cushions to brake lights that could cause a safety hazard.

Hannah is in charge of inspections in 11 counties, including Maury County.

Tuesday morning he continued inspecting each of the district's 135 buses from top to bottom which takes about three weeks in all, he said.

“We're constantly doing what we need to do to make sure children from the bus stop to school from school back home get there safely,” said Bobby Anderson, supervisor of transportation and school safety at Maury County Schools.

Any problems found during the inspection will be fixed by maintenance workers before the start of school.

The buses must be ready to roll in the district by this Friday.

No problems were detected during Tuesday's inspection.
