HB 1021 Speed monitoring systems; school crossing zones.

Introduced by: Les R. Adams | all patrons    ...    notes | add to my profiles

SUMMARY AS INTRODUCED:

Speed monitoring systems; school crossing zones. Provides that a locality may, by ordinance, establish a speed enforcement program utilizing an automated speed monitoring system, defined in the bill, that creates recorded images of vehicles traveling at least 10 miles per hour in excess of the maximum applicable speed limit. The penalty imposed for violating applicable speed limits where such violation is established by recorded images produced by a speed monitoring system cannot exceed $50. The bill provides that a locality may install and operate a speed monitoring system only at school crossing zones. The procedures for operating a speed monitoring system and issuing summonses to violators and the rights of such violators, including the right to appeal to circuit court, parallel those currently in place for red light violations recorded by photo-monitoring systems at traffic lights.
