Lieutenant Robert Gentile is in charge of Youngstown’s traffic division and says they have seen a significant decrease in speed since the school cameras were set up.

“Anytime school is in session, we said that from the beginning, is when these cameras are going to be operational. That is what we are going by. So once school is out, the school zone enforcement will stop,” Gentile said.

The cameras will resume at the start of the next school year.
