Unruly bus riders could find themselves caught on camera
Placeholder Image
Students who act up on school buses may now find their misdeeds playing in a video before their principal.Thanks to new technology in some of our school buses, bus drivers can cut and paste video from their surveillance systems. The ability is especially good in alerting school officials to bad behavior on buses.According to Sherry Lane of Durham School Services, the local fleet has 15 new cameras that are able to provide the video footage. She explained the video can be viewed and the part capturing the offending student can be cut and pasted onto an email which can then be sent to the school.The technology, she noted, saves time for bus personnel, plus it provides video proof to school officials.
