Speed cameras in Baltimore Co.

Speeders in Baltimore County could now be facing a $40 fine if they're caught by school zone speed cameras.

Since February the county has been sending out warnings to motorist caught on camera traveling at least 12 mph above the posted speed limit in two school zones. But on Monday the county starts handing out tickets to violators caught by the cameras near Arbutus Middle School and Dundalk Middle School/Elementary School. Tickets will carry a fine of $40, but no points will be assessed.

Police say cameras will be installed later this year at 13 other sites county officials select later. Under state law, violators will receive warnings for at least the first 30 days the cameras are operational.
