Delaware legislators vote to continue Red Clay’s school bus red light camera program

Delaware State Senator Jack Walsh said a pilot program putting video cameras on Red Clay School District buses to monitor red light runners was enlightening.

“There were 268 violations that were accounted for, that we saw just in Red Clay in 67 days.”

Those caught on Red Clay’s cameras are sent a $100 civil fine, with each subsequent violation being worth $500.

Walsh (D-Christiana/Newark) voted with all but two of the senators to continue the pilot program in Red Clay, where the district has outsourced monitoring the videos to a third party, but then sends the violations.
