What is Automated Speed Enforcement?

In October 2009 the State of Maryland authorized the use of Automated Speed Monitoring Systems (speed cameras) in School and Highway Work Zones. The system uses radar technology to measure the speed of every vehicle that passes the camera. Vehicles found to be exceeding the posted speed limit by at least 12 miles per hour will be photographed to document the violation and determine the vehicle’s registered owner. After the violation is reviewed and approved by a deputized Officer, a citation, including the violation photos and the vehicle’s speed, will be sent to the registered owner.
