From The Providence Journal: In 2007, police across Rhode Island issued just 128 citations to drivers for passing stopped buses; 97 were found guilty. But last year, the General Assembly passed a law letting school systems mount surveillance cameras on buses, a way of catching drivers in the act. Now, with only a handful of buses in Providence and Johnston equipped with the cameras, the number of citations has soared. In just the five months since cameras were put on the outside of four buses in Johnston, the police issued 108 citations, up from only 2 in all of 2007. In Providence, there were 9 citations in 2007; this year, with the number of buses equipped with surveillance cameras growing from 2 in January to 10 today, the cameras had uncovered 591 violations as of the end of May.
