Stop-Arm Camera Program

Safety is in Everyone's Best Interest

Stop-arm cameras are installed at a key location on the exterior of each Austin ISD school bus. When a school bus extends its stop-arm, the system can automatically detect if a vehicle passes the stopped school bus within the enforced zone.

If a vehicle passes the school bus, the cameras capture images and video of the violating vehicle. The images show not only the violating vehicle as it passes the school bus, but also the vehicle’s license plate and the school bus’ extended stop arm. The system also records a video of the violating vehicle as further evidence of the violation.

Violation data and images are then wirelessly uploaded for validation, processing and notice issuance. A final review of the image and video is conducted by AISD’s law enforcement personnel, who then will approve or reject the violation.
