The City of Shreveport has partnered with Blue Line Solutions to install speed cameras at 10 local schools. The cameras will monitor the speed of vehicles in the school zones, snap a picture of speeding cars, and send them a ticket via mail.
The initiative is meant to reduce the speed of vehicles in our school zones and make these areas safer for our children and others.
The schools with these cameras include:
- Atkins Elementary
- Caddo Heights
- Caddo Magnet High School
- Captain Shreve
- Creswell Elementary (Highland Ave)
- Greek Oaks
- Southern Hills
- Westwood Elementary
- Woodlawn High School
There will be a 30 day grace period where speeding drivers will receive a warning. The camera installation will be complete in the next couple of weeks.
Phase 2 of the project will see the addition of cameras at other area schools. Phase 2 schools include:
- AMI Kids Lakeshore Middle School
- Booker T. Washington High School
- Caddo Career and Technology Center
- Calvary Baptist Academy
- Claiborne Fundamental Elementary
- Creswell Elementary (Creswell Ave)
- Farifield Elementary
- Linwood Elementary
- Riverside Elementary
- Summerfield Elementary
You’ll definitely want to be more aware of the school zones throughout Shreveport. Or you may just end up with a ticket in your mailbox.
