LAWRENCEVILLE, Georgia — Officials say Gwinnett County collected about $2 million in fines last year from motorists caught on camera driving past stopped school buses.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution (http://on-ajc.com/1QnA2lt ) reports that Gwinnett Recorder's Court officials said during a presentation Wednesday to county commissioners that approximately $997,000 in fines were sent to the county government in 2015.

Gwinnett school district spokeswoman Sloan Roach says the school district received about $995,000 in fines.

The Gwinnett County school district, Georgia's largest, reached an agreement in October 2014 with county officials to start putting cameras on school buses to catch motorists who drive past when the buses have stopped to pick up or drop off students.

Violators face a $300 fine for their first violation, $750 for a second offense and $1,000 for a third.
