On Monday, December 18, the Baltimore County Police Department activated a new speed camera in a school zone.

The new speed camera is located at the corner of Providence Road and Southwick Drive across from Cromwell Valley Elementary School. For the first 30 days, motorists exceeding the speed limit by at least 12 mph will receive warnings rather than citations.

In compliance with state law, Baltimore County’s speed cameras operate Monday through Friday between the hours of 6 a.m. and 8 p.m., including during the summer months and on weekdays when school is not in session.

Further information on the use of speed cameras in Baltimore County can be found on our website.
