Gov. Kathy Hochul on Friday morning signed legislation expanding the use of New York City school zone speed cameras to 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
Previously, cameras were obligated to shut off from 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. Monday through Friday, and stay off the entirety of the weekend.
Hochul signed the bill alongside Mayor Eric Adams, State Senator Andrew Gounardes, Assemblymember Deborah Glick, as well as street safety advocates — all of whom hailed the bill as a practical step towards better protecting children.
