This is of the 10400 block of Tenbrook Drive in Silver Spring where a new camera will be located.

Montgomery County drivers, beware: 18 new locations will be equipped with speed cameras. Drivers will receive a $40 citation if they are caught doing 11 mph or more over the speed limit.

There will be signs along the new locations notifying drivers that they are entering an area that's being monitored by speed cameras. That will no longer be the case for the county's mobile cameras, however.

Instead, those new mobile devices will survey longer stretches of busy roadways where police say drivers slow down in the area where cameras supervise, and then speed right back up when they get out of the camera's view.
