Speeding through a school zone in Hancock could result in a ticket, but an officer won’t have to stop motorists if the town agrees to try a portable  automated-enforcement system. The Town Council on Wednesday heard a presentation by Optotraffic of Lanham, Md., which makes and markets a portable-enforcement device that detects speeding vehicles with lasers and photographs them. State law allows automated systems in school and work zones, said Mario Bohorquez, the company’s chief commercial officer.
