Pennsylvania Implements Photo Enforcement for School Bus Stop Arms

Photo Enforced School Bus Stop-Arm Cameras in Pennsylvania

Senate Bill 851 marshals more law enforcement resources to catch individuals who violate the school bus stop arm law. School districts have the choice to add cameras to their school buses to capture the license plate numbers and images of cars that drive past illegally when the stop arm is out and red lights are flashing.

The bill expands the automated enforcement program that has been growing in recent years. Much of Pennsylvania already uses BusPatrol's "smart buses," whose data captured nearly 8,000 vehicles illegally passing stopped school buses in the first half of the 2022-2023 school year in Pennsylvania.

“This legislation will protect our children, plain and simple,” Senator Wayne Langerholic Jr., who introduced the bill, said.
