CHEYENNE, Wyo. — Cheyenne school buses are getting video cameras to record drivers who illegally pass when the lights are flashing and the stop arm is extended.

A state law requires all school buses in the state to have cameras by the 2016-17 academic year.

Laramie County School District 1, which includes Cheyenne, has had some cameras in place for six to eight months. Cameras for the rest of the fleet are expected to arrive in a few weeks.

If the bus driver spots a vehicle passing illegally, the video will be downloaded so officials can work with law enforcement on citing the driver.

The Laramie County district's policy calls for the video to be kept for 21 days unless it is downloaded and saved.
