School Bus Stop Arm Cameras Reducing School Bus Passing Violations
CrossingGuard® School Bus Stop Arm Enforcement
Schools across the Country are choosing the CrossingGuard® School Bus Stop Arm Enforcement System to reduce the number of school bus passing violations and protect the safety and well-being of their students. From automatic violation detection to complete violation processing, CrossingGuard® maximizes the industry’s best photo enforcement equipment and resources, while minimizing the staff hours required by School Districts and Law Enforcement.
How CrossingGuard Works
CrossingGuard® is a completely automated enforcement system that requires no bus driver involvement. High-resolution cameras installed on the exterior of the bus automatically capture images and video of violating vehicles as they illegally pass the stop arm. In addition to capturing video, the system automatically embeds a data bar which includes GPS coordinates, date and time of the violation, and other relevant violation information used to create a comprehensive evidence package. Once the system captures the full violation package, it automatically sends the violation data to ATS’ remote back office via a secure private cellular network for review and processing. A final review of the violation image and video is conducted by law enforcement personnel, who then may approve or reject the violation. If the violation is approved, a citation is issued and mailed to the vehicle owner. Payment collection and court support are also included as part of the programs complete end-to-end solution.
