Smile for the Camera

October 1st, 2009 · 3 Comments

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.

Drive Carefully,

    Only getting fined over 12mph sounds very generous to me Ned. Over here we can be fined for being 5kph, a little over 3mph. This sucks considering that most cars speedometers aren’t that accurate so you could be speeding without even knowing.

    Thanks for the warning – the few times I’ve driven in Baltimore it wasn’t a lot of fun, and I doubt this news will make my next trip that much more enjoyable.

    Then again, I’d assume Baltimore needs every cent it can get atm.

    Thanks for stopping by Ashok. Baltimore wants every cent they can get (note I didn’t say “NEEDS”).
