CARROLLTON, Ga. -- August 13, 2012
Officials say a west Georgia school system is the latest to add school bus cameras aimed at nabbing motorists who break traffic laws.
Tempe, Ariz.-based American Traffic Solutions said in a statement that the Carroll County school system has installed high-resolution cameras to the front and rear driver's side of its school buses.
The company says the cameras can capture images of motorists who illegally drive by stopped school buses while students are getting on and off the bus. The cameras can also capture images of license plates.
Last year, school officials in Cobb County, just northwest of Atlanta, installed similar technology. More than 100 cameras were installed on Cobb County school buses to capture video of drivers passing a school bus while the stop arm is down.
