New School Bus Camera Tickets might start showing up in your mail box, if a new San Antonio ordinance is passed.
What you need to know about new School Bus Camera Tickets.
As KSAT 12 notes in their article about School Bus Camera Tickets:
Right now, a number of districts are operating pilot programs with the cameras in place, including Northeast, Judson, South San Antonio, East Central, Boerne, Comal and New Braunfels, as well as Pre-K for SA.
If the new San Antonio ordinance is passed you could be getting School Bus Camera Tickets that are more than $300 if you illegally pass a school bus when it is stopped.
Remember when a school bus is stopped and has flashing lights, it means that children are getting on or off the bus. Their safety is the reason it is illegal to pass a school bus when it is stopped like that. This means you have to stop even if you are on the other side of thh street heading the other direction. The only time you do not need to stop for a school bus with flashing lights is when there is a physical barrier between the heading one side of the road and the other.

KSAT 12 even interviewed out very own Justin Coquat about the civil penalties of School Bus Camera Tickets:
