When it comes to speed camera tickets in Maryland, no county comes close to Montgomery County.

When you combine Montgomery County and Prince George’s County, then you are looking at a Cash Cow!!  These two jurisdictions are responsible for your speed camera tickets in the entire State.

 More than 1.5 million speed camera tickets were issued in the state in fiscal year 2017, generating more than $62 million in fines.   1.2 million were issued in Montgomery and Prince George’s counties.

AAA spokesman John Townsend said:  “Motorists stand a three times greater chance of being ticketed in Montgomery County and Prince George’s County than any other counties or jurisdictions in the state.”

Maryland speed cameras are restricted to school and work zones, with the exception of Montgomery County, where speed cameras are also deployed in some neighborhoods, grandfathered into the state law.

There are a large number of jurisdictions in those counties — including Bowie, Hyattsville and Takoma Park — that also have speed cameras.

 

Private contractors that manufacture and maintain the automated speed camera equipment get a share of the fines — ranging from 33 to 48 percent.
