Take your lead foot off the gas New Yorkers! Cameras are busting speeders on 14 roads including two highly traveled ones in Central New York for the week of May 6.

The radar was installed as part of legislation, signed into law in September 2022. The cameras move around the state every week to different construction zones in an effort to get drivers to take their foot off the gas and keep workers safe.

Cameras in CNY

Where are those speed cameras this week? There are three in Central New York, all in Onondaga County.

If you drive the speed limit or a little over you won't have to worry about where the cameras are.

I usually drive by the "9 you're fine, 10 you're mine" philosophy and set the cruise 9 miles over the speed limit.
