School Zone Speed Enforcement

After Labor Day, children are back in school in all states which means stopping speeding in school zones is more critical than ever at this time of the year while children are more likely to be present. For communities with concerns for children or evidence of dangerous driving near schools, automated enforcement can provide an ongoing solution that does not require using important law enforcement resources. 

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) compiled at list of states where automated enforcement cameras are currently used. For each state, IIHS also created a table of state laws on automated enforcement. 

The following states allow automated speed enforcement:

  • Alabama
  • Arizona
  • Colorado
  • District of Columbia
  • Georgia
  •  Illinois
  • Iowa (by City Ordinance)
  • Louisiana
  • Maryland
  • Missouri (by City Ordinance)
  • Nevada
  • New Mexico (by City Ordinance)
  • New York
  • Ohio
  • Oregon
  • Pennsylvania
  • Rhode Island
  • Tennessee
  • Utah
  • Virginia
  • Washington

Camera enforcement requires acceptance and support among the public as well as elected officials, backed by state laws.
