Photo speed monitoring devices; locality-designated highway segments. Authorizes localities to, by ordinance, authorize their local law-enforcement agency to place and operate photo speed monitoring devices in certain locations named in the ordinance, provided that (i) the highway has a posted speed limit of 35 miles per hour or greater; (ii) the ordinance identifies the locality-designated speeding offense to be enforced by the photo speed monitoring device; (iii) speeding, crash, or fatality data support the need for stronger enforcement against speeding; (iv) in counties and towns whose roads are subject to the control and jurisdiction of the Department of Transportation, the locality-designated highway segment is in the secondary state highway system; and (v) the Superintendent of State Police, upon request of the chief law-enforcement officer for the locality, annually certifies that the speed limit on the locality-designated highway segment cannot be safely enforced without the use of a photo speed monitoring device. The bill directs the locality to also identify the speeding violations that may be enforced by a photo speed monitoring device. Current law authorizes the use of photo speed monitoring devices in highway work zones and school crossing zones. Read the Bill »
