Falls Church, VA (WTVR) – You could soon get busted for speeding by a school bus.

The City of Falls Church has become the first community in the state to put cameras on buses that will be used to track other drivers. Most other buses only have cameras that view what is happening inside a bus.

The new cameras will be used to catch drivers who drive past a stopped school bus or who speed in a school zone. A police officer will review the footage and mail out tickets to offenders.

A first offense will cost you $250.
