As many people may already know School Zone Speeding Ticket Cameras have recently been setup throughout Nassau County. These cameras are in addition to the red light cameras that have been installed over the past several years in both Nassau and Suffolk Counties. While there are no points added to the license of the owner of the vehicle which allegedly went through the red light or sped through the speed zone, the fines generated by these violations are real and add up. As of the time of this writing September 25th, 2014 the fine for a violation of either offense is $50.00 plus a $30.00 Driver Safety Fee for a total of $80.00 per ticket. Often times the owner of the vehicle is not even the driver at the time of the offense was committed, and is unaware the ticket was even issued until several days down the road when a bill comes in the mail. The letter sent by the County or its representative includes a link so that you can view the infraction on your computer and watch the vehicle as it goes through the red light or speed zone.
While many assert that these cameras promote safe driving I believe that they are simply money makers that punish the driving public. I believe that often times the cameras can cause accidents by forcing motorists to slam on their brakes at the last minute thereby causing rear end accidents.
