Explanation

The bill authorizes a pilot program of automated speed enforcement in New Haven. It allows the city to establish a fine of up to $100 for any violation captured by the automated device(s). The revenues from these fines would be deposited into the general fund or any special revenue fund designated by New Haven in accordance with the bill.

It is uncertain if the revenues generated by any such device(s) and collected by New Haven would exceed the capital and operating costs necessary to support the devices and associated administrative costs to process violations.

In accordance with the bill, one-half the revenue generated would be remitted to the state's Transportation Fund.

The Out Years

The annualized ongoing costs indicated above would continue into the future subject to inflation; the annualized ongoing revenue would depend upon the number of devices posted but would otherwise remain constant since fines cannot be more than $100 under the bill.
