City Schools of Decatur will use new technology to crack down on drivers who try to illegally pass stopped school buses.

According to a press release, the school system has hired American Traffic Solutions and will use its CrossingGuard®, ATS’ technology to catch violators.

The press release says, “External cameras capture an image of a vehicle’s license plate and a brief video clip of the entire violation event.”

The company claims that 99 percent of people who have been caught using its camera system haven’t received a second violation.

“Our priority is keeping students as safe as possible going to and from school,” Superintendent Phyllis Edwards said in the press release.

Decatur Police also produced this PSA on the new camera system:
