Governor Newsom signs bill allowing speed cameras in 6 cities

California Governor signed AB 645, allowing speed cameras in 6 California cities. The cameras will be allowed on a trial basis in the following cities: San Francisco, San Jose, Oakland, Los Angeles, Glendale, and Long Beach. The cameras would be focused on high-traffic areas and near schools.

Tickets will automatically be issued if drivers drive more than 11 mph over the posted speed limit. The first infraction would result in a warning. Subsequent fines would be $50, $100, $200, or $500 for exceeding the speed limit by 11 mph, 16 mph, 26 mph, and over 100 mph. 

A similar program launched in New York City reduced speeding by 73%. The law takes effect on January 1, 2024, but cameras are not expected to be installed before summer.
