BROOKLYN - Lawmakers are trying to pass legislation that would impose stiffer penalties on drivers who pass school buses that are picking up children.

The bill would install cameras on school buses which could catch photographic evidence of drivers trying to go around a stopped school bus. The proposed law would be to issue tickets to offenders with harsher fines for those who injure a child.

Statistics from the state transportation authority show that from 2002 to 2007, 75 children were injured while getting on or off a bus by drivers.
