Cameras are needed on school buses

From Paulyette Riddle


My adult kids road a rural bus route! Thank goodness the bus had four cameras that worked!

My children moved here from Chicago and got bullied big time. Oldest daughter defended herself! (The bus driver and the camera supported the issue!) She clobbered the other girl only to knock her out! She went on to earn a school-sponsored education honor! The cameras showed what she said versus the other girl who got physical and very ugly! It was unquestionably documented. And unquestionably “presently” my younger daughter travels on crowded buses that don’t have cameras that work, let alone adults on the bus to assist the drivers!

I was told that nine out of 10 older buses have cameras that do not work.

We need cameras that work! Less crowded buses! And some more shuttle buses! And some shuttle buses with adults assisting (to ride along) period! I remain concerned!
