School’s Out For The Summer

Providence’s school zone surveillance apparatus will remain unplugged for the next two months. From the ProJo:

Drivers no longer need to worry about $50 tickets for speeding through school zones in Providence, East Providence, Central Falls and Pawtucket, because the speed cameras have all been turned off for the summer.

Under state law, the cameras are allowed to operate only 180 days a year, when school is in session, from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. Most schools are slated to reopen at the end of August.

In Providence, the cameras return Monday, August 29.
