MD Drivers Finally Heed Work Zone Speed Cameras: AAA

TOWSON, MD – Speed cameras are posted in work zones in the Baltimore metro area and across Maryland to make drivers think twice before speeding in road construction areas. And the cameras have works with reduced numbers of crashes and fines paid, AAA Mid-Atlantic says. Ticket revenue from the cameras has plummeted 44.5 percent in recent years.

Mobile enforcement vehicles armed with speed cameras are rotating work zones in the Baltimore metro area, as well as other counties, including Anne Arundel and Howard.

A work zone speed camera ticket in Maryland carries a $40 fine and is issued if a vehicle exceeds the posted work zone speed limit by 12 mph or more. The cameras operate 24 hours a day, seven days a week, so even when workers are not present drivers could still get ticketed. The photo citations do not deduct points on a driver’s record or carry insurance penalties.
