This school year, Marietta City Schools (MCS) and American Traffic Solutions (ATS) are deploying CrossingGuard®, ATS’ new technology to help school districts address the growing problem of illegal passing of stopped school buses that are boarding or disembarking children. In 2011, Georgia passed legislation to permit counties to equip school buses with video cameras to catch drivers who illegally drive by school buses when they stop to pick up or drop off students.
