Speed Cameras Catch Drivers in New York School Zones
According to the New York Post, the City's new speed camera program has given almost 12,000 tickets in its first three months. The $50 tickets are being issued to drivers caught going 10+ over the speed limit and do not result in points on their license. Most of the tickets were issued on westbound Queens Boulevard between 58th and 53rd streets in Woodside, near PS 11 and IS 125
While there are 20 speed cameras authorized for use in the state, the numbers come from only five cameras in use between 7:00 AM and 4:10PM (during school hours, per state law). The DOT won't reveal the locations of the cameras, and plans to use all 20 cameras throughout the city.
