Security Cameras in Bus terminals but not on buses
There’s been a lot of controversy over the issue that most bus terminals in the United States have security cameras in them, however the greyhounds and buses don’t have security cameras on them. There are also no security cameras on city buses either. This is causing a disagreement within those agencies as far as people traveling from one destination to another by the means of taking a bus of some type.
The point is argued that some public school buses now carry security cameras on them, yet bus lines in most cases do not. The concept of having security cameras in the bus terminals is a good thing. No one disputes this fact, by having security cameras in the bus terminals there is less of a chance of acts of violence or theft or personal property.
However, on the buses going from one destination to another, there are stops at times. Without having security cameras on the bus, most people will not leave the bus due to the fact that they have carry on cases, and do not want them to get stolen. Without security cameras in order for a passenger to get off of the bus without the worry of theft they must take the cases with them. This is not easy for some to do. Another problem is, if there is some act of violence, without a security camera it cannot be determined who or what started the conflict or actually was initially responsible for the act of violence.
This debate continues, although some bus lines are listening to the public and taking measures to install security cameras on buses. While in fact, other bus lines say they have already installed the security cameras they just cannot be seen. So, in many cases this does confuse the passengers, wondering if they are safe from theft and protected or not.
Many people in the United States use bus lines now rather than flying simply out of fear. However, now they also have the fear of riding buses because this form of transportation from one destination to other has gotten so popular. This being the case, many believe that security cameras should indeed be in plain view of the passengers, equipped with motion sensors as well. This way when passengers get on or off the bus they can have the assurance that the security camera is doing its job. Not to mention possibly letting those who would initially cause problem on these buses traveling over roads in the United States to stay away from the buses all together and cause their problems somewhere else. In fact, theft and harm on these buses could go down. And the busing companies would profit as well, as more people would ride them.
Should the bus lines place security cameras in view to be seen? There are many issues in this area, however the main issue remains the same, buses transporting passengers from one destination to another should have security cameras on the buses as well as in the bus terminals.
