(SALISBURY) -- Rowan-Salisbury Schools is cracking down on school bus stop arm violators. They have installed cameras on some buses to catch those who have broken the law. Derek Graham, Section Chief of Transportation Services with the NC Department of Public Instruction, tells News 14 Carolina that the driving public must be made aware. "There could be consequences. Maybe the community will gain a greater understanding for the need to develop that reflex whenever you see a bus with the lights flashing and with the stop arm extended, that you just can't blow by that stop sign," he said.

Camera systems installed on two of the district's 188 buses can now videotape vehicles that pass stopped school buses. The devices have already led to 10 citations, resulting in five guilty pleas since October.
