Reports show that six months after the launch of the program, 324 citations have been reported in the City of Socorro.“We are encouraged by the success of the school bus surveillance system,” said SISD Superintendent José Espinoza.
“Team SISD is 100 percent committed to the safety of students and staff, and the school bus cameras are strengthening our security efforts in every aspect of the school day.” The violation fines are a minimum of 0.
The ticket revenue is being used to fund the stop-arm camera equipment and program.
The use of cameras in school buses increases safety measures for the 12,500 SISD students that depend on school bus transportation before and after school, on field trips and for other co-curricular events.
All 246 SISD buses are equipped with cameras to capture the license plates of drivers who fail to stop when a school bus stop arm is extended.
The City of Socorro began ticketing motorists who ignore the stop arms in January 2016.
The SISD Board of Trustees approved the districtwide camera system in December 2014.
In 2015, the cameras were installed on all buses in the district.“This new technology can save a life,” Espinoza said.

For the next seven years, Ringley streamed her daily life, uncut and uncensored for an audience of millions of strangers.

SISD school buses travel about 3.8 million miles annually.
