New Orleans city officials today announced that school zone speed cameras will cease operation at 4:45 p.m. Friday, May 24, and remain off most of the summer.

However, the date when they go active again for the 2019-2020 school year has not been determined.

"Because there is no singular Orleans Parish School Board calendar for the 2019-20 school year, all of the individual school calendars will be gathered and a determination made for the Citywide date that school zone cameras will become operational in August," the city said in its statement. "That start date will be selected later this summer."

Although the cameras won't be issuing speeding citations, the city says law enforcement will have access to video from the cameras as needed.
