New Speed Cameras in Baltimore County Used to Help Deter Speeders

In February, Baltimore County began sending out warnings to area motorists who were caught on camera while traveling 12 miles per hour over the speed limit. Cameras were placed in two school zones to help deter speeding and to help promote safety. However, effective this week, speed tickets will be given out to those who are caught on camera speeding. Fines of $40 will be issued but no points will be assessed.

The Baltimore County Police Department said that later in the year they will install another 13 locations. Those locations are determined by county officials. Under the current state law, violators must receive notice for a minimum of the first 30 days that the cameras are operational.

Hopefully, these cameras will make drivers more aware of the speeds at which they are traveling. If you, a family member, or someone you know has been involved in an automobile accident wherein someone was speeding or if you would like a free legal consultation, please contact Portner & Shure for a free consultation.
