Bills would equip school buses with cameras
There’s legislation in Lansing that aims to help catch motorists who drive past stopped school buses. The bills would allow buses to be equipped with cameras to photograph drivers who speed by.
Katrina Morris is with the Michigan Association of Pupil Transportation.
“By allowing the stop arm use camera footage to be used, this will help law enforcement to still be able to still give them the penalties and to give them a fine,” said Morris
Passing a stopped school bus is a misdemeanor punishable with a 500 dollar fine.
