Drivers in two school zones in Spokane will soon want to pay better attention to the speed limit. Monday, the Spokane City Council approved a test period for speed detecting cameras to track drivers near Finch and Longfellow elementary schools.
Jon Snyder sponsored the measure and says it’s about pedestrian safety near schools.
Snyder: “Some of them have flashing lights, for 20 mph, and some of them don’t. These cameras only work in conjunction with 20 mph flashers, so when they’re on and its clearly pick up or drop off time, that’s when the cameras would be in effect.”
