Alexandria’s first speed cameras headed to City Council review this month

A plan to install Alexandria’s first speed cameras is headed to final review at the City Council later this month.

The ordinance will authorize the installation of five cameras across Alexandria school zones with the goal of reducing speeds in those zones.

The ordinance doesn’t specify where those cameras will be placed but adds “photo speed monitoring devices” into the city code.

The ordinance will allow cameras for use both in school zones and in highway work zones.

The new ordinance comes after Virginia code was amended in 2020 to allow limited use of speed cameras in the aforementioned school zones and highway work zones. The five cameras installed will be the first speed cameras in Alexandria.

A presentation to the City Council presented a few parameters for the program:

  • A sworn police officer must confirm the violations
  • Signs must clearly be placed alerting drivers in advance of the speed camera enforcement zone
  • Fines cannot exceed $100

Staff recommended approval of the new ordinance. The proposal is scheduled for first reading next Tuesday, Oct. 11, and final review on Saturday, Oct. 15
