Department of Transportation Announces Additional Automated Enforcement Locations
Tuesday Apr 23rd, 2019
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 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. Photos and video are taken from the rear of the vehicle. Speed cameras operate in Baltimore City school zones, Monday through Friday, from 6:00 AM to 8:00 PM, all year. The speed camera violation fine is $40.00.
Implementation will begin on April 23rd , 2019 at the following locations, including multiple directions:
- 4700 blk Hillen Road to 5200 Perring Parkway – Northwood Elementary School, Lois T. Murray School

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
Implementation will begin on April 23rd, 2019; Red Light Camera Monitoring Systems will be added at the following locations, including multiple directions:
- Cold spring Lane @ Falls Road
- Eastern Avenue @ Patterson Park Avenue
- E. North Avenue @ N. Wolfe Street
- Pennsylvania Avenue @ Dolphin Street
- Martin Luther King Boulevard @ Fayette Street
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
