BYRON CENTER, Mich. — Pro-Vision Video Systems is now an approved school bus stop-arm camera supplier for the state of Pennsylvania.
The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) approved the use of Pro-Vision's HD Dual-Lens Stop-Arm Camera on school buses to capture video evidence of vehicles that illegally pass buses while the stop arm is extended and red lights are flashing, according to a news release from Pro-Vision. To earn PennDOT approval, the camera had to pass a multi-step evaluation that included performance and quality testing.
“We are proud to offer a quality solution that schools in Pennsylvania can rely on to help keep students safe,” said Corey Mathews, transit division sales manager for Pro-Vision. “Our stop-arm camera is the best product available to capture evidence of this dangerous driving behavior. We’re excited that schools in Pennsylvania can now use our product to help prosecute offenders and deter drivers from putting the safety of students at risk.”
The Pro-Vision HD Dual-Lens Stop-Arm Camera features dual-lens technology in a single camera that automatically detects and captures 1080p high-definition footage of license plates and of the violating driver — even at speeds over 70 miles per hour, according to the supplier.
The camera also automatically marks any violation footage as event video — separating it from constant video — to help users find and review footage of stop-arm violators and provide the details needed to report an incident.
According to PennDOT, motorists convicted of violating the Pennsylvania school bus stopping law are subject to penalties, including a $250 fine, five points on their driving record, and a 60-day license suspension.
