IL Senate OKs cameras to catch motorists passing stopped school buses

A plan to put cameras on school buses to catch motorists who drive around buses wth their stop signs out has been approved by the Illinois Senate.

The bill now goes to the House.

Under the proposal, violations would cost $150 for a first offense, and $500 for a second offense.

School districts would receive the bulk of money.

Local counties or municipalities would also have to sign off before a school district could use bus cameras because penalties for going around a stopped bus would need to be reviewed by law enforcement.

    Good idea, but as far as the "bulk" of the money, weren't they supposed to be getting money from the lottery, too? What happened to that? Oh, never mind. Illinois…enough said.

    The bulk of the money to go to schools? Right after they spend it on a whole lot of other useless programs they can dream up.
