Southern California To Get New Cameras That Will Automatically Ticket Drivers Exceeding the Speed Limits
Los Angeles; California: Three major cities in the Southern California region will get new ticketing cameras that will help curb drivers exceeding the speed limits. The cities are Los Angeles, Glendale, and Long Beach.
Governor Newsom signed new legislation that will come into effect from January 1 in the state. The new regulation would assist drivers in slowing down while employing speed cameras.
The legislation, AB 645, which has the governor’s signature, will install those speed cameras on roads deemed to have a high injury rate.
Drivers who violate the posted speed limit by eleven miles per hour will immediately receive a ticket from the cameras.
A warning is given for the first infraction, and a $50 fine is imposed for the second. Drivers who meet certain income requirements may be eligible for a discounted ticket, which will cost $25.
To choose the locations for these cameras, the pilot program will need community support. Even though the new law takes effect on January 1st, those cameras won’t be operational until the summer or possibly later in the year.
