The Baltimore County Police Department is still watching for those who choose to speed, drive aggressive or distracted. As there is less traffic on the roads because more people are heeding the advice of staying home due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it doesn’t mean that drivers can ignore the traffic laws.

There are still people who need to be on the road – police officers, fire fighters, medics, nurses, doctors. Don’t be a danger to others who are working tirelessly to save lives. Speeding has always been a main contributing factor to fatal crashes.

Police will stop drivers who speed and drive aggressively or distracted, and especially those under the influence. Those drivers will be ticketed!

Slow down, pay attention and think of others who are working around the clock. Drive safely to get you and others to the destination alive!
