TEMPE, Ariz. — American Traffic Solutions (ATS) today announced that it has been awarded a five-year contract with King County Directors' Association (KCDA) to provide CrossingGuard, ATS' school bus stop arm photo enforcement solution, to KCDA members.
KCDA is a purchasing cooperative that provides centralized procurement services for public school districts in the state of Washington and neighboring states.
CrossingGuard will provide KCDA members with a new weapon in the fight against illegal stop arm running. When the stop arm is deployed, the CrossingGuard system automatically detects a vehicle illegally passing the bus in either direction and captures video of the violation and images of a vehicle's license plate. The goal of this program is to reduce the number of injuries and/or fatalities related to stop arm violations. It is estimated that each school day, more than 1600 Washington drivers illegally pass an extended school bus stop arm.
"We're excited to have an opportunity to partner with KCDA on this important safety initiative," stated James Tuton, CEO of American Traffic Solutions. "Our CrossingGuard solution provides schools, bus drivers, and the police with an important enforcement tool to protect children as they enter and exit the school bus."
