Cameras on NYC school buses can nail illegal passers
Reckless drivers, beware. Cameras are coming to New York City school buses to catch you. The high-tech cameras will record license plate numbers of drivers illegally passing school buses when children are getting on and off the bus.
Logan Bus Company has a contract with the city providing nearly 2,000 school buses. During the upcoming school year, 10 city school buses will be equipped with the cameras as part of a trial program. The cameras are already on some buses for a pilot program in the East Meadow School District on Long Island.
"There's been quite a few instances where not only one car will not stop, but six at a time will blow past a school bus while the stop sign is out," Logan Bus Company Vice President Corey Muirhead said.

”East Meadow's 30-day pilot program, expected to occur before the end of the school year in June, will install cameras on about a dozen of the district's 60 buses, officials said. The district serves 4,000 students who take a bus… East Meadow's school buses are provided by Guardian Bus Co. of Oceanside. Company vice president Corey Muirhead said he believes the cameras will increase student safety.”
New law allows school bus drivers to be randomly drug tested at any time
"We want the safest and most reliable drivers on the road at every single stop, at every single place, and at every single school,” Director of Contracts & Business Development of Logan Bus Company Cory Muirhead said. "For those drivers not to be placed in the random drug and alcohol testing, it's counter-intuitive to the safety of these kids.”
