speed cams should be coming to Phila

 

again, I'm not a proponent of them, and am a proponent of rlcs.

I do agree there is a problem on Roosevelt Ave.

Problem with speed cams is it's not hard to not be aware of one's speed, so focusing upon it could pose a distraction. At the same time, yes, there's a 11 mph leeway like in MD. Then you have roads that seem to be good for 40 mph conservatively, but are set at 25. A lot is wishy washy, such as being able to put them in construction zones, and have the fine increase upon more than one violation (no specifics either).

Not just Phila, all of PA

The Bill, SB 172 started out as a bill for work zones throughout Pennsylvania specifically. Roosevelt Blvd. was added on during the legislative process as a "pilot" program. The bill passed both the House and Senate and awaits the Governors signature which he said he would give.

The first violation will be a warning.

The second violation will be $75.

Each violation after will be $150.

The registered owner of the vehicle will get the ticket. If they can prove they were not driving the vehicle at the time of the violation the ticket will be revoked. Any/all violations are a no point violation.

For the entire final text of the bill see here:

isn't it interesting

how we in PA can never seem to do things as well as other states?

Why not follow MDs lead and make it a $40 fine, period. It's reasonable. Also, why make an issue out of keeping track how many? Well the one on 10/5 was proven it wasn't the driver, but one on 10/6 was, 10/7 there were 3 violations, 2 were disputed, just $40 each and every time lol

and we wonder why amazon won't have their 2HQ here or why we can't handle the Olympic games.

We don't even have electronic displays acknowledging that an E-ZPass was read properly, like every other state.

The PA Governor signed the bill on Oct. 6, 2018, read the bill for details but speed cameras are now legal in PA.

again not for them

I am for rlcs, but not speed cams. There are in fact instances where a road is 25 mph limit, looks like it may be 35 or 40, and likely the speed limit is outdated. OR, a mobile one is setup in a construction zone with nobody doing any work or even there.

School zones? Absolutely.

RLCs, it's cut and dry if a person did, or did not, run a light, no problem.

But when one looks at the fine amount in PA, vs. MD., one has to wonder....
