The state’s transportation department installed speed cameras between the exits for US-1 and Philadelphia Rd. earlier this month. The government is taking the obvious approach, mounting the cameras on white SUVs that read “Safe Zones.” There was a three week grace period for drivers to adapt to these new eyes on the road, but that’s over now. On Thursday, the cameras began looking for folks going a bit too fast.

The limit for getting a fine is 12 mph, which means drivers will get tagged for going 67 mph. The fine is $40.
