ROME POLICE DEPARTMENT
In less than one week, speed camera enforcement begins in the Rome Middle-High School zone on Veterans Memorial Highway.
Citations will be issued from one hour before school, throughout the school day, to one hour after school.
This will only be when school is in session.
Motorists will be cited if they exceed the school zone speed limit by 11 miles per hour.
It has been shown that reducing speed by five miles per hour doubles a child’s chance of survival is they are struck by a vehicle.
Once again, enforcement will begin on Tuesday, September 7.
