NEW YORK   Mayor Bill de Blasio put forward a package of proposed street safety legislation, targeting drivers with potentially dangerous medical conditions and those with repeat red-light and speed camera violations. But it’s only a third piece of legislation, an expansion of speed cameras, that now seems to be the focus for lobbyist heading to Albany next week. http://www.ny1.com/nyc/all-boroughs/news/2018/03/23/mayor-joins-advocates-to-push-for-more-speed-cameras-in-nyc

Speed cameras are placed in school zones to photograph speeding vehicles. They can be operated from an hour before the school day to an hour after it, as well as from 30 minutes before a night or weekend activity to 30 minutes after it. This includes vacation times, when classes and activities may still be going on inside the facility.

If a speeding violation has been committed and is documented by a camera, the vehicle owner will receive a Notice of Liability (NOL) in the mail about 14 days after the violation is committed. You have 30 days from the date of the NOL to pay or dispute the violation without penalty. The fine for speed camera violations is $50.
