DANGEROUSREALITY According to the NHTSA, 21 children under the age of 19 are injured or killed each year as pedestrians getting on and off buses. 1,151 deaths have occurred, since statistics have been kept, with 40% or 441 coming from motorists illegally passing school buses. One half (50%) of all school age pedestrians killed while loading and unloading a bus are between the ages of 5 and 7.

ROUNDROCKPILOT Pilot Ran For One Month April 16 th –May 21 st
E QUIPMENT E VENT C APTURE E VIDENCE P ROCESSING L AW E NFORCEMENT R EVIEW T ICKET I SSUANCE 12 Exterior camera housing is installed on the bus to monitor up to five lanes of traffic Optional internal cameras are installed to manage safety hazards inside the school bus Data, including video and still images of license plates and vehicles, is securely transmitted to a central server where it undergoes a triple verification process. Once evaluated against city- authorized criteria, we provide law enforcement with a comprehensive evidence package to ultimately determine whether a violation occurred. We print and mail notices for violations after approval by law enforcement. Automation software records all events based upon the activation of yellow lights. Motion detection software is used to identify potential violations HOW ITWORKS
LEADING-EDGETECHNOLOGY Safety camera systems equipped with industry-leading SMARTcam software, providing unmatched functionality and flexibility. Cameras are unobtrusive, and easily installed and operated on any school bus. Cameras can capture multiple viewpoints across multiple lanes, even in low light or poor weather conditions System automatically detects vehicles in the violation zone – no action is required by the bus driver SMARTscene full-motion video system provides situational awareness before and after each incident
SECUREDATACAPTURE Camera systems instantly capture a variety of data law enforcement needs to effectively evaluate incidents and determine whether violations occurred, such as: Hi-resolution still images, including a wide angle image of the incident scene and a zoomed image of the license plate 12 to 16 seconds of HD video detailing the incident Date, time, location and bus route of each incident All data is digitally signed, encrypted and secured at the moment of capture. Its immediately transmitted to a central processing server, preventing interception and manipulation of the evidence while ensuring the highest level of protection to the chain of custody.
VIOLATIONPROCESSING Triple Verification: All incident data undergoes a comprehensive, triple verification review from our in-house processing specialists. Each incident is reviewed three times by three different specialists prior to submitting evidence packages to law enforcement. Custom Criteria: Each client can determine the factors for processing specialists review – we dont have a one-size-fits-all approach. In-House Mailroom Services: Unlike competitors, all printing and mailing of documents related to violations are done in-house. No disruption of the chain of custody, and we maintain control of all data throughout the violation process.
VIOLATORSUPPORTSERVICES Call Center: Multi-lingual call center available 11 hours a day, five days a week, providing the public with an avenue to get their questions answered.
