NYC lawmakers approve use of cameras to catch speeding motorists

There are traffic and vehicle laws in place in New York City, as well as throughout the rest of the U.S., to keep roads safe. Law enforcement officers are charged with the task of ensuring motorists obey those laws. With so many drivers hitting the roads each day, this can turn into a daunting task because enforcement is subject to police being in the right place at the right time to observe a traffic offense. Some states have started taking advantage of technological advancements in order to assist cops in policing the streets.

Recently, lawmakers in New York City passed a law approving the installation and use of speeding cameras. The program would begin with a five-year trial period. Initially, it is reported that at least 20 of the cameras will be put in school zones to deter motorists from speeding in those areas. No information was released regarding whether or not additional cameras would be added during the trial period or in the event that the program is made permanent after the pilot program is completed.

Under the new law drivers who are caught driving over the posted limit by the traffic cameras will be charged a $50 fine. It remains unknown to the public at this time how law enforcement and the Department of Motor Vehicles will handle motorists who receive multiple speeding tickets through the speeding camera program.

If you have received a speeding ticket or have been charged with another traffic offense, it may be of benefit to consult with an experienced attorney for advice on your specific situation. Legal counsel will be able to help you to understand all of your options and are available to answer questions or address concerns as they arise.
