And there are other cameras on this bus as well. For MUNI fights ‘n stuff.
Anyway, if the SFPD is looking for you and you park your ride on a bus line street or, really, if you just drive it around the 415, this bus-mounted camera scanner is how they found you.
And if you park illegally in a bus stop, SFMTA employees will read your plate from the video and use that to issue you a ticket.
Cameras, cameras everywhere…
