New speed cameras added to Nassau County school zones
Drivers beware! Starting in September, 2014 the Nassau County Speed Camera Enforcement Program will be issuing speeding tickets to any motor vehicles driving in excess of 10 MPH of the posted speed limit. The new school speed zone will be enforced on school days during school hours (at least one hour before and after) and during student activities at the school (half hour before and after). The question becomes which schools are in on this program and how will drivers know when “student activities” are in place? The violation will render a $50.00 citation. The violations do not carry any points against the driver. The law does not require the posting of any signs to alert drivers. This summer more than $2.4 million dollars in fines were waived by Nassau County for certain speeding tickets issued on days when school was not in session. If you receive a moving violation ticket in Nassau or Suffolk County and need a Long Island traffic attorney to represent your interests contact the New York trial attorneys of Bashian & Papantoniou.
