Am I the only one to think that the ppl complaining here are oot?
A NY'er getting a camera ticket will feel more stupid about not knowing the camera location than being mad about the city placing them.
try driving from Lakewood to BP on a quite Sunday, you drive on the GSP 80, SIE 50, ramp 45, then 35, ocean parkway 25, you feel like you are sleep walking no joke, ocean avenue in lakewood has a higher speed limit then ocean pkwy in NYC

I once fell asleep by the light on ocean pkwy, actually twice

LOL. It's like a rude awakening. Everything was going so smoothly until I exited the BQE to 38th Street. Then it happened. Ticket never arrived but I've never made the mistake since.

I completely understand why an OOTer would be complaining, but you're proving (/explaining) my point.

Does NYC even claim schools as a reason? They say repeatedly how they wish they had permission to install more cameras in more places for longer hours.
I'll repeat myself just one more time. There is no such a thing as an excuse, it is either the law or not. The law is SCHOOL ZONES hence SCHOOL SAFETY

Read it:

Talks about eliminating traffic deaths and injuries. Not one word about school safety. Vision Zero's goal is zero fatalities city-wide, not only near schools.

Your point?
Read the FAQ it's only legal in school zones only hence school safety

You literally are making that up.

So you live here and get a ticket... Come on! You should know better.
Put the Waze next time, seems like you're not familiar with your own city. (The new cameras were installed a month ago...)

I used to live in BP I moved 3 times within and my opinion didn't change when we BH moved away from there, the enforcement from the city whatever form it may be weather on foot, patrol cars or cameras are here to get your wallet, in many places a cop sees you doing something wrong the'll give you a warning (when they're in the mood), in NYC they are here to ticket you, not to police you, find me someone that lives there that says otherwise

If you say that it's not for school safety then why is it restricted to school zones? It should be everywhere!

The patrol cars are another topic.
But at least we don't have mobile speed trap like they have in other countries...

NYC would love to put them everywhere, but Albany restricts them to school zones. To NYC it's the same camera no matter where it's set up.

And that's why NYC leaves them on even when there's no school. Because they want speed cameras everywhere, all the time.

I gave up on speeding a while ago, everywhere. It's just not worth it.

Except on the GSP bridge right before the Outerbridge. No one goes 45 there.

I give up arguing over this. Write to your elected officials. Maybe they'll agree with you.
