City Council Approves Fine for Drivers Caught Going Around Stopped School Buses

The Texas city council passed a new city ordinance that would fine drivers $300 if they are caught on camera going around a stopped school bus in San Antonio, reported NEWS 4

Initial information provided found that cameras placed on seven buses documented nearly 600 violations by drivers during one school year period. 

Four local school districts—North East ISD, South San ISD, East Central ISD and Judson ISD—have expressed interest in sharing video from their bus cameras to help the city penalize those drivers.

The civil fine will not affect a driver’s record or insurance, according to the proposal.
