Annapolis considers speed cameras

Annapolis officials are considering installing speed cameras near schools and perhaps road construction zones.

Alderman and police officer Mathew Silverman says bringing cameras to Annapolis would not cost the city any money if the right contractor is selected.

The cameras would probably be on tripods and portable.

The cameras must be approved by the City Council. Mayor Josh Cohen said he is undecided on the issue.

Police Chief Michael Pristoop briefed the council's Public Safety Committee on the use of speed cameras Monday night.
