Governor Andrew Cuomo on Wednesday signed legislation to install more speed cameras in school zones across the city.

The 120 additional cameras will be placed in school zones, bringing the citywide total to 140.

The governor says the new law will protect children and encourage drivers to be cautious.

He snubbed critics who say the cameras are a violation of privacy.

"If you think speed cameras are intrusive, don't break the law. And if you don't break the law, you don't have anything to worry about. And if you're speeding in front of a school, you should have something to worry about, because it is reckless," Cuomo said.

Speeders caught on camera will be mailed a $50 ticket.

The new law takes effect in 30 days.
