The New York State Assembly passed a bill yesterday that would allow local officials in Long Island and New York City to operate speed cameras in school zones during school hours. The city is already using some, and they’ve racked up over $600,000 in fines.

What do you think? Are speed cameras in school zones really effective for safety as lawmakers are claiming, or are they just another revenue source for local governments? Or both?
