LEVITTOWN - Nassau motorists may soon get more warning when speed cameras are operating in school zones.

A call for larger signs and bright, flashing lights comes after thousands were caught off guard and slapped with tickets in recent weeks. Leg. David Denenberg announced new legislation Tuesday that he says would ensure that motorists know when the cameras are working.

The legislation would implement functioning blinking yellow lights around the speed zone signs. Also, since cameras can only operate on school days between 7 a.m. and 6 p.m., motorists would not be held liable for tickets given outside those times.

The cameras would also be required to be visible to the public at all times that they are in use.

As News 12 Long Island has reported, Nassau County Exec. Ed Mangano decided to dismiss all of the speed zone tickets that were issued this summer. He adds that he wasn't happy with the way the program was rolled out.
