The New York Association for Pupil Transportation is advocating for legislation to allow STOP ARM CAMERAS to be installed on school buses and to allow the images captured by those cameras to be used in ticketing motorists who pass stopped school buses.
Legislation has been introduced in the State Senate and Assembly as S518A by Senator Catharine Young (and others) and A321A by Assemblyman William Magnarelli (and others).
We urge all New Yorkers to use this page as a source of information that will help us get that legislation passed.
