Advocates want lawmakers to move bill on cameras to prevent passing stopped school buses

Mounting cameras on school buses and making it easier to fine drivers who refuse to stop should be a priority for lawmakers when they return to the capital next week, transportation advocates said Thursday.

If a stopped bus is illegally passed, the camera, mounted on the swinging stop sign affixed to the side of the bus, turns on, capturing the driver’s license plate.

The picture would be sent to authorities who would then dole out fines, but no moving violations or points would be issued.
