New York lawmakers reach deal for school bus cameras to catch drivers

Lawmakers say they have reached a deal to permit school districts to use cameras to catch drivers who fail to stop when students are boarding or getting off buses.

The cameras are not cheap – up to $7,000 apiece – and would be mounted on the arm that swings out when a bus is stopped to discharge and take on students, or on some other part of a bus' exterior. But officials say municipalities and districts will be able to cut deals with camera companies to install the cameras for no charge while allowing the private operators keep a share of the fine money.
