The school zone cameras perform a daily automated internal tuning for accuracy. In addition, the system takes two pictures that measure a start point (point A) to an endpoint (point B), which provides a distance over time measurement. This measurement is used to confirm the velocity picked up by the radar, as well as if the vehicle continued into the school zone. The cameras have an external calibration done monthly and the results are provided to District Court for verification.
