Safety Cameras at #EverySchool!

Clipboard01Traffic crashes are the #1 cause of injury-related death for children in New York City, but only 7% of New York City schools are protected by speed safety cameras.  Today there are only 140 speed safety cameras, switched on for just 60 hours a week.

A movement of New Yorkers is demanding more for their children. Parents are asking Albany legislators for speed safety cameras for every school, to protect every child, every hour of the day.

Make Queens Safer would like to thank the following elected officials, schools, and community organizations for supporting traffic safety cameras at every school in NYC:
