DOVER, Del. (AP)- State lawmakers are considering a bill that authorizes the use of speed enforcement cameras in Dover and Wilmington.
The bill was introduced on Tuesday and was to be heard in committee on Wednesday.
The legislation authorizes Dover and Wilmington to establish pilot programs to use cameras to catch motorists speeding in school zones.
The cameras, similar to the red-light cameras found at intersections throughout the state, would record images of vehicles traveling at least 11 miles per hour above the posted speed limit. Violators would face civil fines of up to $75, with an extra $25 penalty if not paid within 20 days.
The violations would not be made a part of a person's driving record and could not be used to affect a person's automobile insurance rates.
