Providence school zone speed cameras reactivated on Monday

PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) — School zone speed cameras in Providence will be reactivated on Monday, issuing fines immediately.

The cameras were turned off when schools were on winter break.

There are fourteen speed cameras in school zones that will operate on school days from 7 a.m. until 6 p.m. and any vehicle going 11 mph over the 20 mph posted speed limit will automatically be issued a $50 ticket.

In addition, the city is adding new cameras on February 1. Police said they will announce the new locations later this month. Those cameras will issue warnings for the first thirty days.
