El Paso school district launches initiative to ticket drivers who pass school buses

- Starting this week, drivers who pass a school bus in Socorro, Texas while the stop arm is down, will have their picture snapped and receive a $300 citation.

The city of Socorro is southeast of El Paso.

Socorro Independent School District is hoping to make the streets safer for students.

According to KFOX, the initiative started in December 2014 when they tested out a camera system on 10 buses, and later installed them on every bus in the district.

Now the city is helping the district enforce the law by ticketing drivers who are captured on camera.
