Chatham County, GA School Speed Zone Cameras re-activate This Week

The Chatham County Police Department is reminding motorists that school zone speed cameras will re-activate on Wednesday, Aug. 3, 2022, which is the first day of the new public school year.

The cameras reduced speeding in their zones by 93 percent during the 2021-2022 school year.

Cameras will turn on one hour before the start of the school day, and will stay on until one hour after school ends. Arrival and dismissal times vary by school, so motorists should make sure they are always driving the posted speed limit when in a school zone. Cameras do not operate on school holidays or weekends.
