NEW YORK (AP) - A suburban New York county is dismantling a controversial school zone speed camera program.

The Nassau County Legislature voted unanimously to repeal the program after nearly four hours of public comment. The lawmakers had first authorized the cameras in early June.

According to Newsday (https://nwsdy.li/1DAGq3A ), County Executive Edward Mangano says he’ll sign the repeal bill.

The cameras will be shut off effective Tuesday. Tickets already issued must be paid.

The installation of speed cameras immediately raised the ire of constituents, who besieged lawmakers with numerous complaints.

The county also had to forgive $2.4 million in speed camera fines because of equipment problems.
