Automated Speed Enforcement in Frederick

September 21st, 2016 by WCBC Radio

In an ongoing effort to improve work zone safety, the Maryland State Police (MSP) and the Maryland Department of Transportation’s State Highway Administration (SHA) will deploy the Maryland SafeZones Automated Speed Enforcement (ASE) system along northbound US 15 (Catoctin Mountain Highway) at the MD 26 interchange in Frederick County.

Operators will use ASE cameras at the bridge replacement project over MD 26 to enforce the 55 mph speed limit in the construction zone.   After a 21-day warning period, MSP will authorize citations starting Thursday, October 13. Drivers excessively speeding by 12 or more miles over the speed limit, or 67 mph or more, face a $40 civil citation.

Maryland SafeZones supports SHA, MSP and Maryland Transportation Authority Police (MDTA) in the statewide effort to improve work zone safety.  Nationally, four out of five people injured in a work zone crash are passengers or drivers, not workers.
