ABC 10: 6 CA Cities Will Get Speed Cameras

Source: ABC 10 Sacramento

AB 645 was made law last year in California. It allows for six California cities to pilot speed safety cameras for five years on city streets. 

Los Angeles, Glendale, Long Beach, San Francisco, San Jose and Oakland are the cities included.

The San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency (SFMTA) will be implementing 33 speed cameras within San Francisco.

... Assemblyman Phil Ting, who represents the 19th Assembly District, is a lead co-author of AB 645. He says money collected from the tickets will go to traffic mitigation measures like speed bumps or traffic circles.

"The whole point is not to rack up a whole bunch of citations. The whole point is to reduce speeding and these cameras are acting as a deterrent, but also there will be signs, there will be notifications," said Ting.
