The Montgomery County Police Department’s Safe Speed program has incorporated the following methodology for selecting locations for enforcement:
Roadways where cameras are placed follow criterion initially set forth by the enabling Maryland state law, Traffic Article 21-809, which restricts their placement to:
If the location in question is, in fact, a residential road with a speed limit of 35 miles per hour or less or in a school zone, the following process is in place for selecting locations for Safe Speed cameras:
1. Pre-enforcement verification: Consists of requests from citizens, homeowners associations (HOA), legislatures, County Council members, and traffic officers as well as recurring problems, collisions, and other contributing factors (such as speeding, site surveys, and pedestrian proximity); community and environmental concerns such as location features (churches/synagogues, schools, public facilities, etc.), and pedestrian activity.
2. Data collection: Several sources of data collection (listed above) are culled and narrowed to stretches of roadways where there is believed to be a concentration of speeding problems.
3. Data analysis: Collected data is analyzed and reviewed by Automated Traffic Enforcement Unit staff, the Citizen Advisory Board for Traffic Issues (CAB-TI), and the Director of MCP’s Traffic Division. The Traffic Division Director has final approval.
4. Traffic Division Director site visit: Once a potential site has been completely evaluated and all data has been analyzed, a site visit is made to make a final determination whether the potential site will be presented to CAB-TI for review. This visit may include a review of the following:
The Speed Monitoring System Reform Act of 2014 requires a local jurisdiction that authorizes a program of speed monitoring systems to designate an official or employee to investigate and respond to questions or concerns about the local jurisdiction’s speed monitoring system program. The local designee shall review a citation generated by a speed monitoring system if the person who received the citation requests review before the deadline for contesting liability under the speed monitoring systems statute. If the local designee determines that the citation is an erroneous violation, the local designee shall void the citation.
