Speed Camera Pilot Program

The goal of the Speed Camera Pilot Program is to change the behavior of drivers and make our roads safer.

Photo speed monitoring devices (speed cameras) will be installed in nine school zones and one construction zone in early 2023.  Speed cameras will Improve the safety of our roads by protecting pedestrians and slowing down motorists, especially around congested and vulnerable locations.


Speed Camera Pilot Program

Following the six-month, 10-camera pilot, countywide photo speed enforcement would be implemented in two phases:

  1. Phase 1, in FY 2024, would include 50 photo speed enforcement cameras distributed between school and work zones.
  2. Phase 2, in FY 2025, would add 30 cameras for school zones.

Fines Begin April 10, 2023

For the first 60 days of the pilot program, motorists will receive only a warning if the speed camera captures them speeding.

There are no points or insurance impacts resulting from a citation. An escalating fine structure, starting at 10 mph over the limit, maxes out at $100.
