Councilman Wants To Expand Speed Cameras In County

Tuesday, December 28, 2010 – Robert Lang
One of the newest members of the Baltimore County Council wants the county to have more speed cameras.

First District Democrat Tom Quirk, who represents Catonsville and Arbutus, said that he is drafting a bill top expand the number of school zone speed cameras from the current 15.

Quirk tells both the Towson Times and that the bill is a work in progress.

Quirk said that he would hope to introduce his bill next week.

Quirk did not return calls from WBAL Tuesday afternoon for comment.

Under state law, the 15 school zone speed cameras operate weekdays from 6 a.m. until 8 p.m. 

Drivers caught traveling at least 12 m.p.h. above the speed limit face fines of $40.
