Drivers Beware: New Speed Cameras Are Coming

Read Later

ticket_shutterstock_124660393The Bowie Police Department announced this week that new speed-monitoring cameras have been installed on Peach Walker Drive near C. Elizabeth Rieg Regional School. The cameras will become active on Monday.

There will be a two-week grace period during which police will issue only warnings to drivers exceeding the speed limit by 12 miles per hour or more on Peach Walker Drive. After Nov. 16, violators captured on camera will be issued a citation, the police said.

Under Maryland state law, speed cameras can be placed within a half mile of a school to help control speeds and keep pedestrians safe. The Bowie Police Department operates speed cameras in these locations near local schools:

  • Old Chapel Road near Samuel Ogle Middle School and Whitehall Elementary
  • Race Track Road near Yorktown Elementary
  • MD 197 near Rockledge Elementary
  • MD 450 near Bowie High and St. Pius X Regional School
  • Northview Drive near Northview Elementary
  • Belair Drive near the Belair Annex to Bowie High
  • Kenhill Drive near Benjamin Tasker Middle School
  • Collington Road (MD 197) near Benjamin Tasker Middle School

How Speed Cameras Work

Automated speed enforcement systems include a speed measurement device, a camera and a computer. Speed measuring devices identify motorists traveling 12 mph or more over the posted speed limit. Cameras capture license plate images of violations and computer records of all the relevant data associated with the violation.

When a speed violation occurs, the automated speed enforcement equipment records the date, the time and the speed of the vehicle, the police said. Operation times for automated speed cameras are weekdays from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. in school zones (regardless of when school is in session).
