Additional Automated Enforcement Locations

New enforcement locations will increase traffic safety in city communities

Baltimore, MD (September 08, 2017) – The Baltimore City Department of Transportation today announced the addition of new automated enforcement locations, as part of the city’s Automated Traffic Violation Enforcement System (ATVES).   

Baltimore’s ATVES uses automated speed and red light enforcement cameras to promote safe driving habits in city communities.  This program is designed to increase safety by reducing driver speeds in school zones, and decrease the incidence of vehicles running red lights.

The speed camera monitoring system consists of portable and fixed speed cameras that detect vehicles which exceed the posted speed limit by at least 12 miles per hour.  The speed cameras operate in city school zones Monday through Friday, from 6:00 AM to 8:00 PM all year long and the violation is $40.00.  

Starting on September 25, 2017, speed camera monitoring systems will be added at the following locations:

  • Gilman School: 100-800 West Northern Parkway
  • Hamilton Elementary/Middle School: 6000-6200 Harford Road
  • Mergenthaler High School, St. Elizabeth School, and the Baltimore City College High School: 3400-3900 The Alameda
  • Baltimore City College High School: 1000-1300 33rd Street
  • Calvin M. Rodwell Elementary School: 4200-4600 Liberty Heights Avenue
  • Frederick Elementary School: 2500-2900 Frederick Avenue
  • Benjamin Banneker Eubie Blake Academy: 1200-1400 Woodbourne Avenue
  • Westport Academy Elementary Middle School: 2500-2700 Waterview Avenue

  • Archbishop Curley High School: 4200 – 4400 Erdman Avenue
  • Curtis Bay Elementary/Middle School: 4200 – 4800 Pennington Avenue

The red light camera monitoring system consists of stationary cameras that use sensors working in conjunction with traffic control signals to record images of motor vehicles entering an intersection during a red light signal phase.  Photos and videos are taken from the rear of the vehicle with the red light signal visible, both before the vehicle enters the intersection and while it is traveling through it.  The red light enforcement cameras are operational 24 hours a day, every day of the year, and the fine is $75.00

The following automated red light camera monitoring locations will be added starting on September 25, 2017:

  • Harford Road Northbound and The Alameda
  • Harford Road Southbound and The Alameda
  • West Northern Parkway Eastbound and Greenspring Avenue
  • West Northern Parkway Westbound and Greenspring Avenue
