Children will be tracked by satellite on public transport and encouraged to spy on their friends and report bad behaviour, under a pilot scheme by the Welsh Assembly. Pupils will use a picture swipe card to clock on and off the bus allowing parents to keep a closer check on their child via a website. The project is being trialled across the six North Wales counties to tackle anti-social behaviour on school buses.
The scheme include 'Bus Angels' aged 14 and above, who covertly report incidents of bad behaviour - Peter Daniels, transport manager at Denbighshire County Council said: "The main aims are to support schools, drivers, parents and pupils on school buses to improve behaviour and enable them to understand the consequences of some of the things they do.
