Hate to break to you, but Maryland is next on the list for speed cams :twisted:
Montgomery County - The technology company that currently manages speed cameras in the District will soon do the same for its Maryland neighbor, Montgomery County. The Montgomery County Police Department has just signed a contract with ACS State and Local Solutions Inc. to provide a comprehensive speed enforcement program for the county that will be the first of its kind in the state.
Locations for the cameras are still being decided upon as are the number of cameras. But what’s known is that the added enforcement will be concentrated in county wide residential areas and school zones with a speed limit of 35 mph or less. The municipalities of Rockville, Gaithersburg and Chevy Chase are simultaneously working on programs for their territories. Police Chief Thomas Manger said in a written statement that the new equipment really puts a premium on safety.
“Automated speed enforcement will help our county enforce the traffic laws and combat and correct the aggressive driving behavior of those who choose to speed,” he added. “Our goal is to save lives and speed cameras will give us another resource that will complement our existing enforcement measures.”
