Department of Transportation Announces New School Zone Camera Location in Baltimore City
Friday May 6th, 2022
Baltimore, MD (Friday, May 6, 2022) – The Baltimore City Department of Transportation will implement a new automated enforcement location in the coming weeks, 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 cameras to promote safe driving in city communities. This program is designed to increase safety by reducing driver speeds in school zones and decreasing the incidence of vehicles running red lights. The ATVES program also helps to reduce traffic congestion and damage to streets, homes and other infrastructure by commercial vehicles that travel along restricted roadways.
The speed camera monitoring system consists of portable and fixed cameras that detect vehicles which exceed the posted speed limit by at least 12 miles per hour. Speed cameras operate in Baltimore City school zones Monday through Friday, from 6:00 AM to 8:00 PM throughout the entire year. The speed camera violation fine is $40.00 as set by State Law.
Speed camera implementation will begin on or about Monday, May 16, 2022 at the following location:
- 5000-5200 blocks W. Forest Park Avenue (southbound) – Dickey Hill Elementary/Middle School
The block range listed above is an approximation for the automated enforcement zone. Enforcement at all locations may be on a temporary, rotating, or permanent basis. To learn more about Baltimore’s ATVES program visit: https://transportation.baltimorecity.gov/atvesprogram.
