In an attempt to crack down on drivers illegally passing school buses, a Northern Kentucky school district has added cameras.

Officials with Boone County Schools said they have added 12 new buses to its fleet, each equipped with a camera.

The new cameras will help with safe off-loading and on-loading of students, automatically capturing stop-arm violations for law enforcement review.

The 12 new bus cameras are in addition to two that the school district already utilizes.

“We now have fourteen buses with the Stop-Arm cameras and we pair them with forward-facing cameras to record traffic from both angles. We have seven more buses coming in May and this will be the standard for all of our new buses moving forward,” school officials said in a brief statement.

WLWT is working to learn more about the buses and will update this story throughout the day.
