BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW) — Buffalo Mayor Byron Brown announced Friday the School Zone Safety Program will be suspended effective Monday, November 23 at four locations in the city due to the schools transitioning to fully remote instruction.

The four locations are as follows:

• Canisius High School, 1180 Delaware
• Nichols School, 1250 Amherst Street
• Notre Dame Academy, 1125 Abbott Road
• St. Joseph University School, 3275 Main Street

The program will remain in place at the Buffalo Promise Neighborhood Children’s Academy located at 3149 Bailey Avenue and the camera at that location will be active.

Earlier this week the Buffalo Common Council voted to approve new abbreviated hours for school zone speed cameras.

The speed cameras will only be activated an hour before and after the school day begins, and an hour before and after students are dismissed.

The new hours, which are now in place, are 7:30-9:30 a.m. and 2:30-4:30 p.m.
