School bus cameras watching Frederick County, Maryland drivers

When drivers in Frederick County, Maryland see a school bus, cameras could be looking back at them. According to the Frederick News Post, the Frederick County Public Schools system has installed 11 external cameras below the bus’s flashing stop sign to capture the front and back license plate of people speeding around a stopped school bus. Plans are to add nine additional cameras to buses, each costing $1,350. The cameras also record the time, date, speed and GPS position. For now, drivers will not be ticketed. A measure to allow the offending driver to be fine failed to pass in the state’s General Assembly earlier this year. A reworked bill to be proposed next year could lead to civil citations being issued against a driver.
