The speeding ticket epidemic is in full swing. People are not aware that there are cameras all over the place. They are in disguise. You may think that there is a trash can, light post, or even a box. But what people do not know is that they are speeding cameras. The state has been adding cameras on roads where it is easy to speed.
Speeding cameras are put in places with large populations of people. For example, if you are near a school, there is a good chance a speed camera is near because children's safety is important. Other places include bus stops, playgrounds, pools, sidewalks, retirement facilities, crosswalks. Anywhere where there could be a big group of people. (speeding camera locations/fines)
Speeding in D.C. can get you a much heavier fine than a speeding ticket in Maryland. In D.C. a person could get a ticket from a camera with $200. A popular way of getting a speeding ticket is from a red light camera. Those are for people who try and beat the yellow light, who do not make it fast enough.
An anonymous poll was taken from students and staff at Bullis about where they were caught by a camera and how much it costs. 33.3% of Bullis students and staff who have responded to the survey said that they had gotten a ticket for $40. There are even people who have received a fine for over $200. Make sure to be on the lookout because cameras are everywhere.
