Why were the Speed Zone Cameras installed?

Effingham County began implementing an automated speed enforcement program in October of 2021. The purpose of the program was to reduce the number of speeding vehicles traveling through school zones, thus reducing the likelihood of crashes, or injuries, especially those involving children. The school zone safety program includes 9 schools. Effingham County Sheriff’s Office, in conjunction with Blue Line Solutions, LLC, established an extensive program that emphasizes safety, education, and information components not usually utilized in photo-speed enforcement programs.
