Speed Camera Legislation Passes House Committee

(Providence, RI)  --  A bill regulating speed cameras in Providence is making its way through the Rhode Island House. WPRI-TV reports the Judiciary Committee passed legislation on Tuesday night requiring first-time speeding offenders to receive a warning, and second-time offenders to receive a 50-dollar fine. The bill will also require more signs to warn drivers of the cameras and limit when they can be active. This comes as the city announced some details this week of a settlement from a class-action suit against the cameras, including that drivers will get partial refunds from previously-issued tickets.
