In last night’s council session, the city council approved speed cameras in the city’s school zones.  The zones includes most of the City, including all of Route One and Rhode Island Ave. north of Route 193. 

In order to make the approval, the council approved an amendment to the Chapter 184 of an ordinance “Vehicles and Traffic” by adding article Viii, “Speed Monitoring Systems” Section 184-45 “Speed Monitoring System In School Zones”.

The council voted unanimously on the proposed change.

” I believe that the restrictions on use of the speed cameras provide sufficient protection for the rights of innocent people, while still helping to ensure that we can promote public safety on these roads”– said council member Patrick Wojahn.
