Department of Transportation Announces New School Zone Automated Enforcement Locations
Tuesday Aug 16th, 2022
Additional locations will increase traffic safety in school zones and city communities
BALTIMORE, MD (July 28, 2022) —The Baltimore City Department of Transportation would like to advise motorists of new automated speed 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 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 year. The speed camera violation fine is $40.00 as set by State Law, and no license points are assessed.
Speed camera citations will begin on or about Monday, August 8, 2022 at the following locations, including multiple directions:
- 3000-3300 blocks Edmondson Avenue – Alexander Hamilton Elementary School and Mary E. Rodman Elementary School
- 3400-3500 blocks E. Northern Parkway – The Maryland School for the Blind and Glenmount Elementary/Middle School
- 3100-3800 blocks Gwynns Falls Parkway – Windsor Hills Elementary/Middle School, KIPP Baltimore, Edgewood Elementary School and Gwynns Falls Elementary/Middle School
- 3100-3500 blocks Auchentoroly Terrace – Frederick Douglas High School
The block ranges and intersections listed above are approximations for the automated enforcement zones. 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.
