BALTIMORE COUNTY, Md. (WMAR) - Update: Due to a technical difficulty, the four speed camera will not yet become active. Officials say they will notify the public as soon as the cameras are repaired and ready to operational.
If you plan on speeding though Baltimore County, you better watch out, four new speed cameras will become operational Thursday.
A fifth camera is also scheduled to become active, but is pending State Highway Administration approval.
The new cameras that become operational tomorrow will be located in school zones. They will be on Scotts Level Road at Winands Elementary School, Goucher Blvd at Loch Raven Academy, on Seven Courts Drive at Seven Oaks Elementary and on Smith Avenue at Bais Yaakov.
A fifth camera planned for St. Ursula's School on Harford Road is still pending approval, however, residents will be notified once that camera becomes operational.
For 30 days after the activation, motorists exceeding the speed limit by at least 12 miles per hour will receive warnings rather than citations. Citations will be issued after 30 days.
Speed cameras will remain in use throughout the summer months, Monday through Friday between 6:00 a.m. and 8:00 p.m., as school sites are used for summer school, activities, athletics and other child-oriented activities.
