Slow down: Buffalo school speed zone cameras go live on Monday

There's going to be a grace period until February 6 where you will get a warning if you're caught speeding. After that, it's a $50 ticket.

BUFFALO, N.Y. — Buffalo drivers, here's your warning.

Remember those school speed zone cameras 2 On Your Side has been telling you about? They're about to go live on Monday.

The cameras have been going up around the city for months now. They've taken a little longer than expected to get working.

But when they're on, they will catch drivers going more than 10 mph over the 15-mph speed limit in those school zones.

But city officials say don't take that as an invitation to break the limit because police are out there too.

"Police officers can issue anywhere from 16 to 25, whereas the law says the cameras can only issue at 26. So I think my message to the public is, go 15," Buffalo parking commissioner Kevin Helfer said.

There's going to be a grace period until February 6 where you will just get a warning if you're caught speeding. After that, it's a $50 ticket.
