Speed cameras are coming to Maryland's Baltimore County. That's after the County Council approved the use of speed cameras in school zones in the county on a 6-1 vote Tuesday.
Under the council's action, the number of cameras in the county will be limited to 15, and an annual report on their use will be required. The cameras will be placed within a half mile of schools and will be in operation from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. on weekdays. They'll snap pictures of passing vehicles traveling at least 12 mph above the posted speed limit. Violators, identified by license tag, will face a $40 fine.
There are already speed cameras in the District and in Maryland's Montgomery County. A recent state law in Maryland gave counties the go-ahead to expand their use.
