It's illegal to pass a stopped school bus in Montgomery County, Md., but hundreds of drivers a day don't following the law.

The county school system has been using cameras mounted on the outside of school buses to gather data. They just released video showing how widespread the problem is.

Next week, the county is expected to vote on a bill authorizing a program for buses that's similar to the red light and speed camera programs.

Automated cameras would be mounted on buses to capture pictures of cars that pass illegally.

Tickets of up to $250 per infraction would then be send out in the mail.
