The Department of Transportation Announces the Relocation of a Commercial Vehicle Height Monitoring System Camera to Broening Highway

BALTIMORE, MD — Today, the Baltimore City Department of Transportation announces the relocation of a Commercial Vehicle Height Monitoring System Camera to the 1400 block of Broening Highway, as part of the City’s Automated Traffic Violation Enforcement System (ATVES) program.  

The Truck Over Height Camera currently located along the 3600 block of Hillsdale Road will be relocated to the 1400 block of northbound Broening Highway.  After months of construction at the Calvin M. Rodwell Elementary and Middle School on Liberty Heights Avenue, the camera will be moved back to its original designated location along Broening Highway.  Implementation along northbound Broening will begin on Friday, July 10, 2020.

The 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
