Play associated audio

The Montgomery County council will unveil a report tonight on the county's speed camera program. The county asked and received from the state permission to install the cameras two years ago. Now, all jurisdictions in Maryland are allowed to have them.

The report comes as some county leaders, including the county executive, are pushing for more cameras and speed humps.

Council president Phil Andrews says he prefers the cameras. Andrews says the county also is looking into creating more traffic circles to replace stop lights.
