Be on The Lookout For School Buses It Could Cost You
Schools starting in the Treasure Valley which means hundreds of school buses will be hitting the roads. I'm sure at one point or another, we have all at least thought of passing a bus while it's lights are flashing and kids are getting off (Let's not pretend to be saints) but now, some Idaho schools are equipping buses with cameras and forwarding the video to local police.
KTVB looked into it and also found out about stop-arm cameras being used on some Idaho school buses.
First Student, which serves the Boise School District and the Brown Bus Company, which serves the Nampa School District are among some of the companies that have buses already equipped with the stop-arm cameras.
According to AARP passing a school bus in Idaho while the lights are flashing could carry a fine of $100 to $500 and 4 points on license. Let this remember to be on the lookout for buses this school year.
