2 way radio clicker interferance

My special needs son rides to from school in one of those little yellow school buses you see everywhere. There are about a 100 or so of these buses in my city.

The problem is that some anonymous driver is clicking or pressing their mic button while dispatch is trying to legitimately communicate with another driver. The drivers say that this problem happens everyday and they have no way of tracing who the offender is. I’m concerned as a parent because this interference could potentially present a safety issue. Dispatch uses a single frequency for 100 plus buses. 462.150MHz.

If you have 100 plus 2-way radios operating at this frequency and some idiot keeps disrupting transmissions by pressing his or her transmitting button, is there some way to trace which radio is that of the offender?

Unfortunately its very hard to trace the signal of the transmitter. However the school bus company can have their radios programmed so they are the only ones that can talk in on that specific channel.
