The Maryland Transportation Motor Vehicle Administration announced it will begin to inspect school buses electronically.

The Maryland School Bus Safety Inspection System will allow inspectors to use tablets to generate information about school bus engines.

Once there's an electronic report, it is added to a system so that the state can keep track of all bus inspections. The reports will indicate whether buses passed or failed their inspections.

The state requires all school buses to be inspected three times a year.
