Photo School Bus Stop Arm Violations

These violations are enforced through photo equipment and are different from other traffic violations as they have no impact on driving record or insurance.
  • Payment of this civil penalty will not become part of a person's driving record, is not used by insurance companies in calculating motor vehicle insurance premiums, and will not result in criminal conviction.
  • Notice of violation is mailed to the registered owner of the vehicle that allegedly failed to stop before reaching or overtaking a school bus while the visual signals were in operation.
  • Penalty for violation: $300 for first offense, $750 for second offense, $1,000 for each subsequent offense. Unpaid violations may be transferred to collection agency, referred to state tax refund interception, and reported to credit bureaus.
You may call 866-790-4111 or 770-794-5261 for any questions about photo school bus violations.
