More Problems With The Buffalo School Speed Zone Camera Program
According to WGRZ, the school speed zone camera program has been the center of controversy since it began back in October. Buffalo residents now have even more issues with the program.
Myself and Delaware District Councilman Joel Feroleto and the Council President are just being overwhelmed with the number of complaints from folks getting these tickets, and months after the alleged infractions.
said, University District Councilmember Rasheed N.C. Wyatt.
The problem that people who drive through the school zones have is not so much the speed limit, it's the time it takes to receive your ticket if you are going too fast in the school zones. Mr. Wyatt also said that "People are becoming very angry and we are starting to feel it".
The City of Buffalo is working on making changes to the program that will speed up the ticket processing, tickets have to be mailed out within 14 days of the infraction.
There maybe thousands of motorist who are just receiving tickets for infractions committed months ago.
said, Joel Feroleto.
I just happened to be in a school zone earlier today, and it didn't even dawn on me why everyone was driving so slow. I can now see why this has been such an issue in the city, not only because of the time it takes to get a ticket but also it's easy to forget you're in a school zone when school is not in session.
