New traffic cameras are coming to Baltimore.
Seven speed cameras and 11 red light cameras will be installed around the city within the upcoming weeks. The Department of Transportation said the program will help increase safety by reducing driver speeds in school zones, decrease the incidence of vehicles running red lights, and for commercial vehicles, reducing traffic congestion and damage to streets, homes, businesses, and other infrastructure on posted (signed) streets.
The cameras capture vehicles going over the posted speed limit by at least 12 miles per hour. They’ll operate in Baltimore City school zones Monday- Friday from 6:00 AM to 8:00 PM all year.
Beginning on October 15th, speed cameras will be added at the following locations:
- 3000 to 3700 blk Garrison Blvd – Liberty Elementary School
- 2400 to 2800 blk North Dukeland Street – Bard High School – Early College, ConneXions School

- 400 to 1000 blk East Preston Street – Johnston Square Elementary School
- 2800 to 3200 blk Loch Raven Blvd – Abbottson Elementary School
The red light cameras operate 24 hours a day, every day of the year. That fine is $75.00.
