State legislature considering speed cameras in school zones


The state legislature is considering two bills (SB 435 & HB 978) that would allow speed cameras in school zones. This measure would address aggressive drivers, like the one who hit and killed school crossing guard and grandmother Edna Umeh in a school zone, as children looked on, horrified. 

Automated speed enforcement is also a safer and more equitable way to approach traffic laws enforcement than traditional traffic stops. 

This will save lives. 

You can help it get adopted into law. Ask your state legislators to put an end to speeding in school zones.
