The Santa Rosa County School District is partnering with AngelTrax, a mobile video surveillance company, to target drivers who put their students in danger. Officials explain that the program will help to catch drivers who illegally pass school buses. According to AngelTrax’s School Bus page, the company will be using artificial intelligence to issue citations to drivers. If a vehicle overtakes the bus while the stop arm is out, the system will automatically download the video to a data center where trained technicians will review it. If the incident appears to meet the requirements for a violation under Florida code, it will then be passed to an authorized law enforcement agent for confirmation, then a citation will be issued by mail to the registered owner of the vehicle. In their press release, Santa Rosa County District Schools notes that 98% of drivers who receive a citation never get a second.
