Hyattsville's new new automated speed camera program goes live today.
For the first 30 days, speeding motorists caught by the cameras driving more than 12 miles-per-hour above the speed limit will receive a written warning in the mail. After that, speeding motorists risk a $40 fine for speeding. The citations will not be reported to insurance companies, nor will they result in new points on your drivers license.
The city is starting the program with five portable camera units, all of which are expected to be up and running by March.
The cameras will be located at the following locations, each of which is within one half of a mile from a school:
- 3700 block of East West Highway (Westbound)
- 3700 block of East West Highway (Eastbound)
- 7000 block of Adelphi Road (Southbound)
- 5900 block of Ager Road (Southbound)
- 5900 block of Ager Road (Northbound)
These cameras are in addition to three red light cameras located at the intersection of Baltimore Avenue and the Alternate Route 1 bridge (looking northbound), the intersection of Queens Chapel Road and Queensbury Road (looking northbound) and the intersection of East-West Highway and Queens Chapel Road (eastbound).
