The bill would require violations of speed and red light cameras by school vehicles to be reported four times a year.

Councilwoman Mary Pat Clarke has introduced legislation that would allow the city to track speed and red light camera violations by school vehicles.

The ordinance will be introduced during the city council hearing scheduled for 5 p.m. on Monday, according to the agenda posted online.

According to an introductory copy of the bill, it would require the Department of Transportation, with assistance from the Department of Finance, to report citations and warnings for school vehicles to the council and mayor’s office four times each fiscal year.

Baltimore City doesn't even know whether the cited school buses were really speeding. Their cameras have been issuing tickets to large vehicles where the recorded speeds were off by 30mph! http://www.baltimoresun.com/news/maryland/sun-investigates/bs-md-speed-cameras-mainbar-20121117,0,4657438.story Will city officials admit that they were so negligent in their inspection of citations and equipment that they wrongly cited some of their own school buses, or are they so far gone that they would sooner see honest safe school bus drivers fired than admit the extent of their accuracy problems?
