MINEOLA, N.Y. (CBSNewYork/AP) — Nassau County is forgiving $4.2 million in speed camera fines issued in the last month.
County Executive Edward Mangano said there were problems with cameras installed at six school locations because of malfunctions in the equipment and the timing.
Mangano said he is declaring amnesty on the fines. He said enforcement resumes when school opens next month.
“Clearly, there were some errors in the speed zone violations, so we’re meeting with the vendor and our traffic safety department to make certain that those errors are corrected,” Mangano told 1010 WINS. “So as a matter of fairness, we’re eliminating all those tickets.”
