MARYSVILLE, Wash. (AP) - A school district in Washington that installed traffic-enforcement cameras on 15 school buses has begun to fine drivers after issuing warnings throughout April.

The Daily Herald reports (https://bit.ly/2qJ7LfE ) Thursday that Marysville School District issued 45 warnings in April to make drivers aware of their traffic infraction, but May is a new story.

Drivers who are caught passing a stopped bus could receive a $419 fine.

In Washington, drivers going both directions are prohibited from passing a stopped school bus if they are on a two-lane road, or where there’s no divider between the directions of traffic.

Infractions captured by the cameras are treated like parking violations under state law. They don’t go on a driver’s record.



Buses with routes entirely in the city of Marysville are outfitted with the cameras.
