LAFAYETTE, Louisiana — The Lafayette Parish School Board has rejected proposals from two companies for camera services on school buses. The board decided to explore purchasing their own cameras to monitor activity inside the buses and to catch drivers who break school bus traffic laws.

The Advocate reports (http://bit.ly/1mfKq23) the board's original measure was to vote on proposals Wednesday submitted by two companies to install internal and external cameras on the school system's 210 buses, as well as monitor and issue tickets to people who violate traffic laws, such as passing a school bus that has its stop sign deployed.

Board member Erick Knezek said with new city and parish officials, the board could benefit from working with the new heads of law enforcement on issuing tickets for drivers who break school bus traffic laws.
