Cameras added to South Bend school bus arm signals
SOUTH BEND, Ind. - South Bend School Corporation unveiled a new gadget Monday aimed at keeping students safer while they are traveling to campus.
Traffic cameras have been installed inside the stop sign arm signals of school buses.
Those cameras will record any driver who puts student in danger by driving around the arm signal.
"It's just been a summer working on transportation," Superintendent Dr. Kenneth Spells said. "We just want to keep students safe I want our students to concentrate on academics and not worry about getting hit."
The video from the arm signal cameras will be sent to South Bend Police and the St. Joseph County Prosecutor's Office to build cases against those accused of breaking the law.
