Speed Cameras Approved in Three SoCal Cities


Drivers in three Southern California cities begin to receive speeding tickets in the mail after Gov. Gavin Newsom signed off on a speed camera pilot program, a bill that allows Glendale, Long Beach and Los Angeles, to install speed cameras in school zones and high-injury streets with speeding problems.

The cameras would take a picture of a car's license plate and not the driver, which officials hope will address privacy concerns, if the vehicle is breaking the speed limit by 11 mph or more. First-time offenders would get a warning and then fines would start at $50.

The program includes a provision which requires cities to reduce fines for those under the poverty line.
