SPOKANE, Wash. - Do you pay any attention to school buses in your neighborhood? Central Valley School District is hoping that you do. On Tuesday the CV School District launched a new pilot program that puts video cameras on their buses to help curb illegal passing while students are loading and unloading from their bus stops.
The District has outfitted three buses with the REDFLEX Student Guardian system which includes two HD cameras pointing towards the street that activate when the flashing warning lights and stop arms are extended on the buses.
These cameras operate in much the same way as red light cameras already in Spokane to catch drivers running red lights. The CV School District hopes to bring awareness to drivers about the potential dangers of passing school buses that are delivering children to their homes or school. Bus drivers from the area say that this is an ongoing problem and a daily occurrence.
The pilot program will go through the end of the school year and the Central Valley District will determine after that time whether to keep the program for future school years. For more information be sure to tune in to NewsBreak at KHQ.com at Noon.
