From The Washington Post: The Montgomery County (Md.) Council has approved a bill to authorize the installation of traffic cameras on the outside of school buses. In a one-day survey last year, drivers in Maryland reported that about 7,000 people ignored the red stop sign and flashing lights on a school bus and kept driving. That number included 1,645 violations in Montgomery County. Officials hope to outfit the first two dozen school buses with the cameras, which cost between $5,000 and $8,000 each, by next school year.
