Photo Speed Enforcement in High-Risk Intersection Bill to be Sent to Governor

SB 336 (Roem), as amended, contains much of the same language as the introduced but makes the bill narrower in its application.  The current version of SB 336 defines a “high-risk intersection segment,” as, “… any highway or portion thereof located not more than 1,000 feet from the limits of the property of a school that is part of or adjacent to an intersection containing a marked crosswalk…,” and a traffic fatality must have occurred since January 1, 2014.  The amended version adds language stating that any civil penalties collected in the high-risk intersection segment shall be paid to the Commonwealth Transportation Board and used for the Virgnia Highway Safety Improvement Program.

This new language DOES NOT interfere with the current code language and process for operating and enforcing photo speed cameras in school and work zones.

The amended version of SB 336 would pass out of the House 73-26 and the Senate would agree to the amended bill by a vote of 22-17.  The bill will now be sent to the Governor’s office.
