School buses in Highline adopt stop sign cameras

By Tim Clifford

Starting in June those who ignore school buses with their stop signs out will face a hefty $394 ticket thanks to newly installed cameras on buses throughout Highline.

Similar to speed limit cameras that monitor school zones or red lights these “paddle cameras” are designed to snap a picture once a vehicle passes the bus while its stop sign is out. Currently five buses throughout Highline are equipped the cameras with more buses expected to follow soon. For the time being enforcement officials willonly send out warning notices to those caught through May while actual fines will go in to effect in June.

“Until June drivers will get a warning rather than a citation because we’re not out to make life hard for people. We want them to know that we have this capability and we want it to be a deterrent,” explained Catherine Carbone Rogers of the Highline School District.
