On November 29, the Montgomery County Council introduced Bill 37-11 that would allow installation of cameras on the outsides of County school buses to monitor vehicles that illegally pass stopped buses.
A public hearing on the bill was held January 24, and the public can still provide written comments to: Montgomery County Council, Office of Legislative Information Services, 5th Floor, Council Office Building, 100 Maryland Avenue., Rockville, MD 20850.
The Council bill is needed to locally enact Maryland State Senate Bill 679, which was passed by the 2011 General Assembly, and allowed cameras to be installed on the outside of County school buses. Drivers caught illegally passing a stopped school bus would be subject to a maximum civil fine of $250.
