Traffic Speed Cameras in Maryland

Invisible Speed Traps Legal in the State

Traffic Speed Cameras in MarylandThe state of Maryland strategically places equipment along its highways that clocks the speed of motorists. When the speed of a car exceeds the legal limit, a camera photographs the vehicle’s license plate, and the registered owner of the car is sent a speeding ticket. Though there have been some technical problems with some of the cameras, and some counties in Maryland have suspended the program, the law is still in effect. In fact, according to The Washington Post, the state of Maryland issued about a million and a half speed-camera tickets in 2017, generating over $60 million in revenue.

The Maryland statute allows speed cameras to be placed within half a mile of a school. The cameras may be used for speed enforcement between the hours of 6:00 A.M. and 8:00 P.M. Tickets are issued based on speed camera evidence only when a driver is caught exceeding the legal speed limit by at least 12 miles per hour. Furthermore, before a ticket is mailed, the video from the camera is reviewed by a sworn law enforcement officer.
