Where are NYC's speed cameras? Officials won't say. But based on where and when tickets were issued, we've mapped approximate locations of cameras that have ticketed consistently as recently as January. Inactive sites indicate roving cameras or fixed cameras no longer operating. See more about types of camera locations.

Speed Cameras in New York City
Officials won’t say where they’ve placed NYC's controversial speed cameras. But based on where and when tickets were issued, about half of them appear to be in fixed locations. The rest are mounted on city vehicles and rove from place to place.
Speed camera locations deduced from the locations of tickets listed in the NYC Department of Finance dataset of parking violations under violation code 36, "Photo School Zone Speeding Violation." (Photo tickets are, indeed, classified as parking tickets.) Reported locations can be vague, and the mapped locations are our best estimate. In some cases we combined some relatively close locations on the same stretch of road.
We deemed a camera to be "active" if it was operating for more than 10 days in a fixed location in January 2015 up to Jan. 26, 2015 which is the last day of data used. Cameras can be turned off or moved at any time, so all "active" locations are estimates.
By state law, cameras only operate near schools on school days during school hours.
Dollar values were calculated from tickets issued, which are $50 each. That doesn't account for additional fees or tickets that were dismissed or decreased.
*Crash statistics calculated from NYPD collision data from September-December in both 2013 and 2014. We counted all collisions within 500 yards of our location estimations for 21 installed cameras.
