On Sunday, protesters took to the streets of Nassau County in Long Island, New York, to demand the county drop its plans for a school zone speed camera program.
Protesters gathered on Oyster Bay Road in front of Our Lady of Mercy School in Hicksville after learning the county has raked in an average of $200,000 per day from violations. Those at the rally said the rollout of the school zone speed camera program was flawed and they want the county to suspend it. They called for better signage in the areas where the cameras are rolling. There is so much outrage that a group of concerned citizens have formed a group called the Nassau County Residents Opposing School Speed Zone Cameras, according to Long Island News 12.
