SPEED SAFETY CAMERAS

In May of 2019, Governor Cuomo from New York signed into law a speed safety camera bill, which expanded the pilot program from 140 school zones to 750, with extended hours of use. This bill was the outcome of four years of hard work, spearheaded by Families for Safe Streets. The Vision Zero Youth Council took part in lobbying days at the New York State Senate in Albany, organizing rallies, and spearheaded a petition that received over 600 signatures from high school students across the city in just three days.
