Warning to my Bmore fam to be extra driving Baltimore officials are neatly doubling the city’s speed and red-light camera system and is charging drivers millions of dollars in fines. A total of 44 cameras are being added to the existing fleet of 56, bringing the total number of traffic cameras in the city to 100.  It includes 19 speed cameras, 19 red light cameras and six cameras designed to catch large trucks traveling on roads where they are not allowed.  Now some of these cameras are really needed.to stop motorists from speeding in front of schools According to the Baltimore Sun, the system is beginning to approach the size of Baltimore’s former speed and red-light camera system, which was shut down in 2013 amid accuracy concerns. At its height, the previous system had more than 160 cameras and generated nearly $20 million in revenue annually. During that time, police officers were asked to review and approve as many as five or six speed camera citations per minute.

The Baltimore Sun investigated the city’s speed camera system in 2012 and reported that the cameras were erroneously issuing tickets, leading to the multi-year shutdown.  The city isn’t saying what they are doing to make them more accurate this time but are pledging greater oversight.

The new cameras start issuing tickets on March 19.

Speed cameras may give out tickets only to motorists who exceed the posted speed limit by at least 12 miles per hour. In Baltimore, they may operate only in school zones, from Monday through Friday between 6 a.m. and 8 p.m.
