Queens, NY Drivers Slammed with Millions in Speed Camera Violations Since Program’s Expansion

The city issued more than $10 million in speed camera violations in Queens alone in the first six weeks after the program’s expansion this summer.

During the first six weeks following the program’s July 11 expansion, the city mailed out more than 200,000 tickets to Queens drivers caught speeding in school zones — and more than 500,000 tickets across all five boroughs, according to city data.

At $50 a ticket, the city has made millions off the program’s massive expansion in less than two months.
