Youngstown police add speed cameras at seven more schools
Drivers in Youngstown should already be used to cameras tracking their speed near schools in the city and beginning Tuesday, that will expand to seven more schools.
Youngstown police announced Monday they will begin using cameras at the following schools on Tuesday, April 25:
Cardinal Mooney High School from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Potential Development from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Taft Elementary from 7:30 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Youngstown Academy of Excellence from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Harding Elementary from 7:15 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Ursuline High School from 6:30 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Youngstown Early College from 6:15 a.m. to 6 p.m.
For the first 30 days, drivers will be issued warnings if they are caught speeding in these zones by a camera. After that, they will receive a citation by mail, which counts as a civil violation and does not count against your license.
The first group of cameras near schools went up in January and YPD has since added several more to school zones throughout the city .
The cameras only operate on school days and the extended hours are to account for after school activities, however the 20 mile per hour speed limit will only be in place during restricted hours based on the individual school day. Violations after those hours will be issued for going over the regularly posted speed, not the 20 mile per hour limit.
