School Zone Speed Cameras
This program is intended to reduce the number of speeding vehicles traveling through school zones, thus reducing the likelihood of crashes, or injuries, especially those involving children. This school zone safety program includes 6 schools. The City of Lawrenceville Police Department, in conjunction with Blue Line Solutions, LLC, established an extensive program that emphasizes safety, education, and information.
A study showed the total traffic count during the hours of 7:20 am and 4:20 pm in Lawrenceville school zones was 153,682. Of those, 38,247 (25%) were speeding 11+MPH above the speed limit. Our goal is 100% compliance.
Beginning Wednesday, August 3rd, Lawrenceville school zone speed cameras will be in operation and a 30-day grace period will begin. During this time, drivers speeding 11+ MPH over the marked speed during school zone hours will receive a warning for their speeding violation. Citations for speeding 11+MPH above the speed limit will begin Tuesday, September 6th.
