Effective today Oct 1, 2009 speed cameras are allowed statewide in MD near schools and highway work zones. Fines will be $40 for those that exceed the limit by over 12 MPH.
Baltimore City will start using them right away. According to the Exhibit A website, the city has already installed a camera at the intersection of Walther and Glenmore avenues. The city plans to have five mobile cameras in use next spring.
So be careful when driving in the city or you could be getting a ticket in the mail. Be Careful who you loan your car to. Their lead foot could get you an unpleasant surprise when you look in your mailbox.
