Department of Transportation Announces Additional Automated Enforcement Locations
Friday Dec 28th, 2018
The Baltimore City Department of Transportation today announces 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, red light, and Commercial Vehicle Height Monitoring System cameras to promote safe driving habits in our City. This program is designed to increase safety by reducing driver speeds in school zones, decrease the incidence of vehicles running red lights, and for commercial vehicles, reducing traffic congestion and damage to streets, homes, businesses, and other infrastructure on posted (signed) streets.
The block ranges and intersections listed for all locations below are approximations for the enforcement zones. Enforcement at all locations may be on a temporary, rotating, or permanent basis.

The Commercial Vehicle Height Monitoring System camera is used to record images of commercial vehicles traveling on a truck restricted (posted/signed) roadway in Baltimore City. The vehicle’s height conveys to the monitoring system that the vehicle passing the camera is a truck. When a truck is detected by the camera system, photos and video are taken of the vehicle from the front in order to capture the registration identification of the vehicle’s cab. Vehicle height monitoring systems cameras are operational 24 hours a day, every day of the year, where posted (signed).
The fine for a Commercial Vehicle Height Monitoring system violation is:
First Offense – Warning, Second Offense - $125.00, Third or Subsequent Offenses - $250.00 each
