Drivers with questions about speed cameras recently installed in Youngstown school zones have an opportunity to get some answers.

The city has scheduled a town hall meeting on school zone cameras at the Jewish Community Center, 505 Gypsy Lane on Tuesday, March 21, 2023, at 6 p.m.

Police Chief Carl Davis is scheduled to speak, as well as a representative from the company that supplied the cameras, Blueline Solutions.

Some drivers have had questions about the cameras, such as why there are different times of operation in various school zones.

Tickets are already being issued because of violations at nine schools in the city.

Four more cameras were activated this month in the city.  However, tickets won’t be issued from those cameras until a warning period expires on April 13.

Violators will be mailed tickets for fines between $100 and $150 depending on how fast they are driving.

Restricted 20 MPH times are posted on a sign before entering every school zone. During non-restricted times, the regularly posted speed limit will be photo enforced when school is in session and children are present until 6:00 PM.

Police say the initial group of schools already launched have experienced reductions in speed between 81-93% at participating schools.
