ABSTRACT
This article discusses issues related to video surveillance. School buses are the safest vehicles on the road as 70 times safer than cars, light trucks and vans. Yet an average of 33 school-aged children are killed each year in bus-related accidents in the U.S. In one instance, authorities discovered that one of the caught individuals was not allowed to walk outside because of his medication, let alone drive a car. Though the VHS system had been successful at catching stop arm violators, its image quality proved problematic at times; and without a date and time stamp, Schultz and his drivers had to search through hours of footage to find the passing motorist.
