Camera on Buses Program Targeted in Lawsuit Posted Image A lawsuit has been filed against the Jefferson Parish Council in Louisiana over a program that calls for cameras to be installed on school buses to catch drivers that pass buses while children are boarding or disembarking. The suit claims that, much like red-light cameras, the program "violates drivers' due process rights" by "immediately assuming a plaintiff guilty or liable of overtaking a school bus simply because the plaintiff is the registered owner of the vehicle photographed." By simply relying on a photograph to issue a citation, the suit says drivers are denied the right to confront prosecution witnesses, such as police officers.
