After a 30-day warning period, enforcement started on Thursday for the new speed cameras at Main Elementary on Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard. That means citations will soon start going out for violations.
Main is the second school zone in the City of Rome to have speed enforcement cameras. The other is the Rome High/Rome Middle School campus on Veteran’s Memorial Highway.
The Rome program will target the most egregious speeders exceeding more than ten miles per hour over the posted speed limit in school zones.
The cameras operate from one hour before school until one hour after school, only on school days.
