Is this a problem in Columbus? I always see people obeying the school bus safety signals.

I agree .
It feels like there is something left out here, how is ATS making their profits for putting these 'free' cameras on the stop arms ?
And how long will it be before enterprising criminals figure out that legions of busses are left unattended at night all over town with these cool, hi-res digital video cameras just ripe for the pilfering ? Because I can pretty much assume almost to the point to guarantee, that these new gems will NOT be difficult to pry off of their housings & strip them off (& go sell)
For my experience, is it worth it ? Who will pay for all the damaged stop arms when people figure out that those nice compact new cameras are their for the taking ? Our school systems insurance ? Will their tax funded ins premium possibly go up ?
Again, I agree with the op . I never see drivers in Columbus blasting thru school bus flashing stop signals .
Maybe it's just the NE area where I reside, but I seriously cannot remember the last time I have ever witnessed someone doing this .
(& I know I would remember because It would probably piss me off, & I'm the guy who will follow u to a stop & just lambaste someone (male or female) for doing something that reckless & self centered .
I just don't see it done around here. Possibly because it's stressed so much in the DDS driver test & study guide ?? idk .
What about YOU GUYS ?? Do any of you remember witnessing people commiting this act around there ?

What are your experiences ??
