New York City may receive state approval for speed cameras pilot program
New York may have speed cameras approved by the summer.
Another state politician joined the fight for speed cameras, the Daily News reported today.
Jeffrey Klein, a Bronx Democrat, will pick up the bill, according to the newspaper, and hopes to pass it by June.
The proposed legislation would launch a pilot program that would put 20 cameras in city school speed zones.
Last month, Council members stated support for the bill – Council Speaker Christine Quinn cited speeding as the No. 1 cause of fatal crashes in the city.
