As Florida looks to reduce the number of distracted drivers on the road by proposing bills with larger consequences, another unrelated bill was filed earlier this year in the Florida House. With House Bill 849, school districts would be able to equip school buses with cameras that can record the license plates of drivers passing the bus when students are entering or exiting the bus.
Miami, FL -- (SBWIRE) -- 05/17/2019 -- Even with the flashing lights and the stop sign on the side of the bus, there are drivers who ignore the signs and still pass the bus illegally. If the bill passes all of its hurdles and goes into effect in October as anticipated, law enforcement agencies would also be able to take a look at the camera footage, use it as evidence, and issue tickets to the offending drivers.
