No, you shouldn’t blow past a school bus. Yes, you’ll probably soon face stiffer fines in New York

If approved as part of the state budget for the fiscal year starting April 1, school districts will receive authorization to install stop-arm cameras on all buses, an idea long championed by Sen. Catharine Young, R-Olean, Cattaraugus County.

The cameras will capture vehicles illegally driving past stopped school buses and lead to motorists receiving a citation.

“This common-sense technology is able to detect and capture images of vehicles that pass stopped school buses so that lawbreakers can be ticketed and fined,” Young said in a statement.

Her proposal didn’t specifically detail how much the fines would increase.
