Rockland, Maine: School bus fleet equipped with cameras

As the legislature debates several bills designed to improve school bus safety, a school district on the Midcoast is taking action.

New buses come with five cameras, four on the inside and one external camera.Over the past few years, RSU 13 has been upgrading its fleet of school buses with camera systems.

Each bus can keep about a month of footage before it is overwritten.

The footage can help with student discipline and can also identify vehicles that break school bus traffic laws.
