School districts left in dark as bus camera company closes

image: camera lensSchool districts that signed on to the school bus camera program being pitched by Dallas County Schools are being left in the dark as the technology company that provided the cameras has closed down.

Force Multiplier Solutions, a Dallas-based security technology company, teamed up with DCS in 2012 to sell cameras that snap a picture of motorists who pass stopped school buses in violation of state law.
