NY Senator Chuck Schumer pushing for federal funding for school bus stop-arm cameras

Traffic experts estimate 50,000 vehicles illegally pass school buses every day in New York. Many districts have started installing stop-arm cameras to catch those drivers.

The problem is larger districts that operate hundreds of buses don’t have the money to do it all at once.

That’s why Senator Chuck Schumer (D-NY) is pushing for federal guidelines that could help with funding.
