Sudbury school bus cameras catch drivers illegally passing
Executive director of the Sudbury Student Services Consortium Renee Boucher says the cameras caught the incidents in just a month — the time the bus consortium has been recording.
The videos have been sent to police for possible charges of illegally passing a bus with its lights flashing.
Drivers will never know which buses have the cameras," she said.
"So, if we know of an area of concern, we rotate the bus, the buses, and we ensure that it's sent to police," Boucher said.
There are four cameras in Sudbury and two in Espanola. Boucher said there will be another two next year on Manitoulin Island.
The system should raise awareness, she added.
"If we can assure the student safety is first on our minds then I think this is a great system."
