"They spend money like drunken sailors,"

EVANSVILLE, IN - The EVSC said they are installing alarms, which cost almost $20 thousand, on school buses to keep kids safe.

Last week, a seven-year-old girl was left sleeping on a bus after the driver did not check all the seats. The EVSC said it will now put alarms on the back of all 275 school buses to alert bus drivers to check all seats before they exit.

David Coker, president of the Vanderburgh County Taxpayers Association, has strong words for the EVSC.

"They spend money like drunken sailors," said Coker.

Coker said it is typical for the corporation to over react to a problem, and that costs the taxpayers.

He added checking seats daily should be a routine for all drivers.
