— The Fresno County Traffic Court is getting a fleet of cameras that will track traffic, stop speeding and speed enforcement on a trial basis.
Fresno County Sheriff Mike Boudreaux said the cameras will help speed up traffic court enforcement.
“It’s a trial, so we’re trying to figure out how to speed up it and to do it in a way that’s efficient,” Boudreau said.
The Fresno Traffic Court, which includes Fresno’s Central District Court, will be using the cameras as a test case to see how effective they are.
“It was designed with the purpose of speed enforcement, and the purpose is to speed it up,” Burtz said.
Fremont Mayor Scott K. Kubly said Fresno County traffic court has been a priority for the city for the past two years.
“We’ve always looked forward to working with the Fresno County Sheriff’s Office to get these cameras up and running,” Kubly told KTVU.
The cameras are being funded through a $5.5 million grant from the state.
The Fresno County Transportation Authority said the camera program was created to speed traffic and speed up the process of determining the legality of certain driving laws in Fresno.
The system was first installed in Fresno’s East Fresno neighborhood in November.
The camera system will be installed in the East Fresno area on Monday.
The trial period begins Monday.
