Staff Analysis of the Legislation

This legislation allows cameras to be placed in school zones but prior to the placement of such devices, a permit should be otbained from the Georgia Department of Transportation. A civil penalty for speeding in such zone is $75 for a first violation and $125 for any subsequent violation with an additional processing fee of $25 assessed. Additionally, should a local government chose to use cameras in school zones, signs must be placed within the approaching school zone warning drivers of the use of speed detection cameras. 
The bill also reduces the civil penalty for passing a school bus that has its stop sign activated.
