Additional speed cameras sought in New York City

All around the streets of New York City, various slow zones or other anti-speeding efforts have been implemented over the course of several months. Drivers who are found exceeding the speed limit may be liable for speeding tickets and resulting fines, points and even driver’s license suspensions. The consequences of vehicular traffic tickets can be harsh and leave drivers looking for help.

In their recent budget requests to the Governor, both Long Island and New York City requested the addition of some speeding cameras to continue the crackdown on speeding. However, both cities’ requests were denied by the Governor and the State Legislature. The rejection of two cities’ requests for speed cameras did not prevent the Assembly Speaker from introducing a bill requesting 120 cameras in addition to those that are already in place in New York City. If approved, that would bring the total number of speed cameras in the city to 140.

The bill also solicits the installation of 69 speed cameras in Suffolk County and 56 speed cameras in Nassau County. All cameras would be in place until 2018. A news story reporting on the bill did not indicate when a decision about it will be made. The cameras can issue fines up to $50.

Drivers who have received speeding tickets from cameras or from officers may be able to get help to fight license suspensions, points and more by talking with an attorney. Getting the facts from a professional with experience is often a wise idea.
