NEW YORK CITY (WABC) -- New York City is hosting a day of awareness before speed cameras begin operating 24 hours a day.
Street teams were out canvassing busy locations across the city Wednesday to notify drivers of the extended hours.
As of now, the city's 2,000 cameras are on between 6:00 a.m. and 10:00 p.m. on weekdays.
But a recent law signed by Governor Kathy Hochul will allow the city to operate those cameras 24/7.
Mayor Eric Adams and the Department of Transportation rallied for the program before it passed the state assembly in May.
The new hours for the speed cameras will go into effect Monday.
