SEATTLE (AP) - Two Puget Sound school districts are installing cameras on their school buses to catch drivers who speed around them.

KING-TV reports ( https://is.gd/YDU0sj the Bethel School District in south Pierce County and the Highline School District in south King County are launching pilot programs on the first day of school.

The cameras operate cameras on the red stop sign paddles. They’ll take three pictures of license plates and a short video of drivers who drive around buses with an illuminated stop sign out.

The fine is a $394 civil penalty.

American Traffic Solutions is providing the service to the districts free of charge. ATS will be paid the $69 camera fee from the $394 fine violators are charged. ATS’ fee covers the cost of installation and maintenance. Aside from some court fees, the school district will pocket the rest.
