The California Legislature will decide whether to equip every bus and child care car or van with a video system in an effort to cut down on bullying on school buses and the number of drivers who do not stop for school buses.
Under Assembly Bill 934, all school buses, school pupil activity buses, youth buses, and child care motor vehicles would need to have internal video systems. Several states have cameras on-board buses and have found them an effective way to stop bullying and vandalism, according to the bill’s author Asm. Mike Gipson (D- 64th District). The bus drivers and school administrators would also be able to monitor student activity, record when students get on and off the bus, and prevent false claims from being made.
