A bill that would create a statewide program meant to crackdown on scofflaws who pass stopped school buses was signed into law on Tuesday by Gov. Andrew Cuomo.

The measure would enable school districts to install mounted cameras on the arms of school bus stop signs to photograph motorists who pass buses when letting kids off and on.

“No parent should ever have to worry that their child’s bus ride to and from school is anything other than safe and easy,” Cuomo said in a statement. “By signing this measure into law, we are providing school districts the tools they need to hold reckless drivers accountable and advancing New York State’s bold initiatives to keep our schoolchildren safe.”

In a single day of enforcement in April 2018, law enforcement officials ticketed more than 850 people for speeding pass a stopped school bus. It’s estimated that 150,000 drivers pass school buses in a 180-day school year.

“The safety of our children doesn’t begin and end in the classroom,” said Bus Patrol CEO Jean Souliere.

“By making stop-arm camera technology available for all school buses, New York has shown national leadership in providing districts with the cutting edge tools to build a comprehensive school safety ecosystem that protects our kids on their way there and back home.”
