Relocated Morristown speed cameras will be activated Tuesday

MORRISTOWN, Tenn. (WVLT) -- Relocated speed cameras on Highway 25E and Highway 160 will be activated Tuesday in hopes of cutting down on the number of crashes in Morristown.

Officers will issue warning citations for two weeks, but there will be a $50 fine after that.

The tickets will go to anyone driving 11 miles or more over the posted speed limit.

City officials say ten people died on Morristown roads last year.

Existing systems throughout the city are scheduled to receive technology upgrades over the next several weeks.
