I do not recall a Newsday article reporting an injury in a school zone because a driver exceeded 20 mph ["Traffic cams near schools," News, Feb. 22].

I can imagine many rear-end collisions from someone abruptly slowing from 40 to 20 approaching a school. When children are present, crossing guards control traffic very well.

The suggestion to place speed cameras near schools seems to be simply a moneymaker, with no benefit to either pedestrians or drivers.
