Mayor Mitch Landrieu's administration, which announced this fall that the city would be expanding its traffic camera program in 2017, has released a list of 32 public and private schools where cameras will be helping to catch speeders and other traffic law violators in the new year.
Landrieu is pitching the expansion, which will nearly double the number of locations where speeders and red-light runners can be cited by cameras, as a safety measure, though it is also expected to help generate about $5 million a year in new revenue for the city.

New Camera Day
Might be a good time to get out and check the school zone signs again to see if they're flashing. Also time the yellows lights. Wouldn't want anyone to get caught unaware. Or maybe we would.
