Do critics oppose cameras on buses?

The Gazette Opinion Staff

I have a question for the governor and the legislators who oppose speed cameras but passed Kadynís Law, which increased punishments for motorists who do not stop for school buses.

Are you also opposed to the school buses equipped with stop-arm cameras that capture videos of motorists who ignore the sign and flashing lights telling them to stop while children are on the road? After all, there is not a traffic officer on the scene to apprehend the violator.

What is the difference?
