Slow down! 5 new speed cameras are being brought online around the area, says the Baltimore City Department of Transportation.
It was announced Friday in a press release. The new cameras are apart of Baltimore’s Automated Traffic Violation Enforcement System. The program “uses automated enforcement cameras to promote safe driving by reducing driver speeds in school zones throughout the city,” the Department of Transportation shares.
They continue, “the speed camera monitoring system consists of portable and fixed cameras that detect vehicles which exceed the posted speed limit by at least 12 miles per hour. Speed cameras operate in Baltimore City school zones, Monday through Friday, from 6:00 AM to 8:00 PM, throughout the year. The speed camera violation fine is $40.00 as prescribed by State Law.”
