Athens, GA (AP) - A new camera system being used on several Clarke County School District buses captured images of 17 violators in its first full week of operation.
    
Athens-Clarke County police Sgt. James Carter says violators face a $300 fine for their first violation, $750 for a second offense and $1,000 for a third.
    
Carter tells The Athens Banner-Herald that authorities are hoping to change driver behavior by having them pay the consequences for their violations.
    
The violations were captured by cameras activated when a school bus arm with a stop sign and flashing red lights swing out as the bus picks up of discharges students. Close-up images record the tags of violating vehicles.
    
The system utilizes a series of six cameras mounted on the bus to catch violators from multiple angles.
