New red light passing cameras thanks to Tribal Grant
Last spring we applied for a tribal grant to add cameras to the exterior of the buses to catch cars that are running the red lights while our buses are picking up and dropping off students. That application was successful thanks to Jennifer Gluch and Terry Lambourn’s hard work. This past summer three additional cameras were added to each bus. The below images are actual bus camera footage from this year in which we have already caught several cars due to the camera system addition. This incident can result in an up to $500 fine and endangers the lives our students who ride the bus. Thanks to the Saginaw Chippewa Indian Tribe for their generous grant. Similar to a traffic light when the yellows are activated on a bus you should slow down and stop no closer than within twenty feet of the bus before the red light and stop sign are activated. As you can see below failure to do so will be caught by our new system and turned over to proper law enforcement.
Please spread the word in an effort to keep our students as safe as possible to and from school!!!
