Re: Will Queens Bus Redesign really speed things up?

The signs are there so if you can't see the school, you'll pay more attention (hopefully). I cannot find any information that you'll get a ticket at 29 MPH, it makes no sense to enact such a change because then anyone who challenges the ticket on the basis of calibration issues is likely to win their case. The existing rules were that the cameras could be used in school zones during after school and weekend activities, which makes plenty of sense to me. The NY Daily News reports that "Data has shown the cameras, which hit speeding drivers with a $50 ticket when they go more than 10 mph above the speed limit, have been effective in making streets safer. Speeding during school hours dropped by 63% and traffic injuries dropped by 14% where cameras were in place from 2014 to 2016." Sounds like a worthwhile program to me.
