Miami-Dade OK’s school zone speed camera plan as lawmakers try to add restrictions

by The 100 Companies

Speed limit-enforcing cameras are coming to Miami-Dade school zones through a contract expected to yield $215 million in fine revenue over six years.

The county, which approved the deal this month, would get $144 million of that sum. RedSpeed, the company operating and maintaining equipment at up to 206 school zones, would get the rest.

Miami-Dade state lawmakers are pursuing related legislation.

A measure by Sen. Ana Maria Rodriguez and David Borrero would call for a ballot question to ban red light cameras.

Another by Sen. Alexis Calatayud and Rep. Demi Busatta Cabrera would prohibit traffic cameras with Chinese parts.
