Residential Truck Traffic Work Group

The Residential Truck Traffic Work Group was established as a result of the Maryland General Assembly’s passage of Senate Bill 41 during the 2020 legislative session. The legislation enables Baltimore County to implement a vehicle height-monitoring system program to address the high volumes of commercial truck traffic on local roadways within communities in the southeastern and southwestern regions of the County.

Prior to the implementation of a program, Baltimore County must establish a work group including commercial transportation industry representatives to assist the County in:

  • Evaluating existing truck routes
  • Identifying areas for vehicle height-monitoring enforcement
  • Evaluating existing signage and identifying locations where signage could be improved

The work group will also examine and make recommendations to the County Council on:

  • Developing a map of height–restricted roads in the County and providing the map to operators using the best available technology
  • Developing and implementing a process for a vehicle owner to easily contest an erroneously issued citation without the necessity of a court hearing
  • Developing a process for the owner of a vehicle to identify and transfer liability to the operator of a vehicle responsible for incurring a citation
  • Exempting certain types of vehicles from enforcement by a vehicle height-monitoring system

Implementation of a vehicle height-monitoring system program cannot occur without approval of that legislation from the County Council and the legislation must include a provision limiting the overall number of vehicle height-monitoring systems to be utilized by the program.
