Watchdog Support for Home Rule Legislation on Speed Limits and Cameras


Reinvent Albany supports granting localities authority to set their own speed limits and enforce traffic laws. To this end, we support the following bills:

We urge the Legislature to pass these important bills. 

Regarding home rule issues generally, Reinvent Albany believes the state should grant localities permanent authority to:

  • Set maximum speed limits;
  • Create and operate automated traffic enforcement camera programs including hours of operation, number and type of cameras, locations and penalties;
  • Establish Residential Parking Permit programs; and
  • Use automated parking enforcement.
