Roosevelt Boulevard Speed Cameras Will Now Be Fining Speedsters $100-$150!

The notorious Roosevelt Boulevard is known for consistently being featured on AAA’s most dangerous intersections in Pennsylvania, might be a bit safer after this weekend.  Locally known for its speed demons, the city is hoping that “hefty fines” will keep folks from pushing the pedal to the metal.

The boulevard’s speed enforcement cameras will start fining drivers going 11 mph or over the speed limit starting Saturday August 1st.  Fines will range from $100-$150 however, points will not be added to driver’s records.  The breakdown will be:

  • 11-19 mph over the limit = $100 fine
  • 20-29 mph over the limit = $125 fine
  • 30 mph+ over the limit = $150 fine

In total the Philadelphia Parking Authority installed thirty-two speed enforcement cameras throughout the Roosevelt Boulevard.  PPA Executive Director Scott Petri stated, “We believe red light cameras save lives — and we believe automated speed enforcement cameras along Roosevelt Boulevard will save more live.”

The installations began way back in January but due to the pandemic construction was temporarily halted causing the delay in the launch.  Mayor Kenney weighed in on the speed cameras stating, “Traffic deaths in Philadelphia are preventable and never acceptable. Adding automated speed cameras on the Boulevard is one of the most effective steps that we can take to eliminate traffic deaths. With the installation of these cameras, we continue to make progress on our Vision Zero efforts to eliminate traffic fatalities in Philadelphia by 2030.
