Last year Gwinnett County schools added bus cameras that photograph drivers who pass stopped buses. In 2015 that yielded 22,022 citations that generated about $4.2 million in revenue for the school district, the county and the company that operates the cameras. A first violation can cost $300.
Muise said the number of citations is falling. The court expects school bus cameras to generate 17,181 citations this year and 16,322 in 2017.
