Local News

NEW YORK STATE (WSYR-TV) — If you pass a stopped school bus, you could soon be caught on camera.

State legislators reached a deal on Tuesday to allow stop-arm cameras to be installed on school buses.

The aim is to keep students safe by holding drivers accountable if they pass illegally.

The New York Daily News reports the Senate and the Assembly have agreed on legislation to allow local school districts to opt-in to the program.

It would also create a yearly report so police can track intersections or bus stops where drivers break the law.

Governor Andrew Cuomo says he supports the legislation.
