Question for police officers

I would like to know what your practice is for charging motorists based on reports by school bus drivers or other motorists.

If you receive a report of a driver failing to stop for a school bus (which you did not personally witness), do you automatically issue a ticket? If not, how much evidence do you require?

Also, if you charge based on a driver's report, do you charge under s. 175(19) and (20) i.e. against the owner of the vehicle or under s. 175 (11) and (12) i.e. against the driver.

Thanks!

I'm just going to point out that you can't charge against the driver based on a school bus operator's report unless the operator knows who the driver is.
