He tells Newsday that five cameras issued tickets on days when school was not in session. Cameras at a sixth location began operating prematurely.

Mangano says he is declaring amnesty on the fines. He says enforcement resumes when school opens next month.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo signed legislation this year allowing 200 new speed cameras at school zones in New York City and Long Island. The cameras are supposed to operate during and immediately before and after school.

The county issued more than 30,000 citations at the five schools, totaling more than $2.4 million.
