    Rockville - Montgomery County will become the first county in Maryland to use radar-activated speed cameras once the first devices are installed in Rockville later this month, according to officials.

    Initially, 15 of the high-tech cameras are planned for the county seat during a six-month pilot period set to start at the end of January.

    The push for the equipment came after the state Senate gave the green light for the program last legislative session. The bill had been vetoed by then-Gov. Robert Ehrlich, but the Senate's positive vote overturned his ruling.

    Based on the legislation, money collected from tickets for violations discovered by the cameras will go back into public safety.

    Rockville spokesman Neil Greenberger said city police suggested 26 possible stretches of roadway for the cameras, which can detect, photograph and ticket speeders. Then those choices were whittled down by a citizens advisory committee.

    The sites selected for the first run of speed camera enforcement are along Baltimore Road, College Parkway, First Street, Gaither Road, Great Falls

    Road, Mount Vernon Place, Nelson Street, Redland Boulevard, Rollins Avenue, Twinbrook Parkway and West Montgomery Avenue.

    In a written statement, Rockville Police Lt. Jim Main said these locations are designed to be spread throughout the city and particularly close to


    Following Rockville, other cities in the county are expected to get speed cameras at an undetermined time.
