NYC Is Installing Hundreds Of New Speed Cameras Throughout The Five Boroughs
In an effort to reduce pedestrian deaths, hundreds of speed cameras are in the process of being added across the five boroughs.

The new cameras are part of Mayor Bill de Blasio’s Vision Zero program and will be added to school zones around NYC. Under the new state law signed by Governor Cuomo, the amount of speed cameras will increase to 750 school zones from the now 140 school zones. These new cameras will all operate from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m., Monday through Friday, all year long! That’s right. Even when the school year is over.

With the new cameras, if you’re caught speeding by 10mph over the 25 mph speed limit the registered car owner will receive a $50 ticket. The installations will be complete by June 2020.
