The devices were installed in October and can capture footage of vehicles that pass the bus on the driver’s side when the stop arm is extended and the red lights are flashing. The downloaded footage can be transferred to a thumb drive for law enforcement to review and ticket can be issued to the registered owner of the vehicle. According to the Governor’s Traffic Safety Committee, fines given for this offense can range from $250 for first-time offenders to $1000 and jail for repeat offenders. HANCOCK, NY (WBNG) — On Wednesday, the Hancock Central School Transportation Department announced the addition of Stop Arm Cameras to all of the school buses in the district. “When a vehicle passes one of our buses with the reds on, the driver can mark the footage by pressing a button on the side dash” says Jodi Newman, a transportation supervisor. On Sept. 5, state lawmakers approved the legislation allowing school districts to add the cameras to their buses.
