HARRISBURG – Legislation is being reintroduced to require automated speed cameras in school zones. The sponsor of the measure, Philadelphia County Rep. Ed Neilson says everyday we see people speeding through school zones, endangering the lives of children and crossing guards in a place where they are supposed to be safe. Neilson added with the help of automated speed cameras, school zone violations in New York City dropped substantially just months after the program commenced While many may feel that it is a money grab, the facts show that the public is the beneficiary of the safety that speed cameras provide. House Bill 2776 has been referred to the PA House Transportation Committee.
