Enforcement of School Zone Speed Limits (Monitor) – Passed 

CS/CS/CS/SB 588 (Rodriguez) and CS/CS/HB 657 (Koster) would authorize a local government to place or install an automated speed detection system under its jurisdiction or a state road when permitted by the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) to be used solely to enforce speed limits in school zones. The bills also require local governments to notify the public of the speed detection system through a 30-day public awareness campaign before enforcement. The bills require each county or municipality that operate a speed detection system to submit a report on October 1, 2024, and annually thereafter, to the Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles. CS/CS/HB 657 passed the House (95-6) and the Senate (35-3) and is awaiting action by the Governor. (Branch)
