Unsafe Speeds at 2000+ Schools

There are over 1 million students in the New York City public school system, and over 2,000 schools. But there are only 140 school locations with speed safety cameras, switched off most of the time as, as limited under state law.

Today, a movement of New Yorkers is demanding more for their children. Parents are asking Albany legislators to expand our speed safety camera program to protect our schools.

Tell your State Senator and Assembly Member that you support bill numbers: S. 6046 and A.7798 expanding speed safety cameras near New York City schools this session. 

This petition will be delivered to
Your NY State Senator and NY State Assembly Member
Speeding is the number one cause of deadly traffic crashes in New York City. It kills children and older New Yorkers, like 12-year-old Sammy Cohen Eckstein, killed on Prospect Park West in 2013, and 88-year-old Feliks Dadiomov, killed on Ocean Parkway just two months ago. These deaths -- and hundreds more -- were entirely preventable.

Speed cameras work; in New York City, they reduced speeding by 60%. But this effective safety technology is currently limited by the State Legislature to protecting only 140 school zones.

Every New Yorker deserves to be safe from speeding drivers. Protect me and your constituents by expanding the speed safety camera program to protect more New York City schools. Support bill numbers S. 6046 and A.7798 this legislative session.
