Deal Reached to Put Cameras on School Buses to Track Passing Vehicles

State lawmakers reach a deal on a bill for cameras on school buses.

They're designed to track cars that pass stopped buses, while kids are getting on and off.

The bill provides money for local governments and school districts to get the cameras which would be placed on the arm of the bus's extendable stop sign.

Video of drivers who pass a stopped bus would be sent to police.

A first-time fine would be $250.

Governor Cuomo commends the legislature for reaching an agreement, and says he'll sign it once it passes the Senate and Assembly.
