Yes, 100%. SF has been doing this for years. I think they ticket for parking in bike lanes, too.

This is what they do in Singapore. Traffic is very regulated. Taxis can only stop in certain areas. Very civilized but people here will complain about their freedumbs.

No, let’s take everyone at their word! Chicago drivers care about the rules of the road!

Absolutely!! Additionally give the bus drivers an incentive in the form of a reward for turning the camera on and writing up the incident. Like $25 for convicted offense. It incentivizes bus drivers, gives them extra pay, and acts as a witness for the courts. Something definitely needs to be done.
