Description

Photo speed monitoring devices; localities; locations. Authorizes towns that have not established their own police department to authorize the placement and operation of a photo speed monitoring device to record speed limit violations. Current law authorizes state and local law-enforcement agencies to place and operate such devices. The bill requires any such town to provide all data collected from the device to the chief law-enforcement office for the town or of the county in which the town is located. The bill removes the limitation that such devices only be used in highway work zones and school crossing zones. Read the Bill »
