Maryland Drivers in Prince George’s County Receive More Speed Camera Tickets

By Alpert Schreyer on April 17, 2013

Maryland drivers in Prince George’s County may view speed camera tickets as just one more driving expense, like the cost of gas, oil, and tires.  As reported by NBC 4 and posted on bowie.patch.com, Maryland in 2012 had a much higher number of repeat offenders than Washington, D.C. when it came to being ticketed by speed cameras.

Maryland Speeding TicketsDrivers in the Maryland suburbs are nearly twice as likely to receive multiple speed camera tickets as those in D.C.  According to American Statistical Association senior statistician David Marker, drivers are 20 times more likely to receive multiple speed camera tickets in the suburbs of Maryland vs. D.C.

Prince George’s County’s speed camera ticket repeat offender rate was two times that of the District.

The reason very well could be the amount of the fine in the Maryland suburbs compared to those in the District.  The cost of a speed camera ticket in Washington D.C. can be up to $300.00, and if the fine is not paid within 30 days it doubles up to $600.00.  In Maryland, the fines are capped at $40.00.

Drivers in Maryland who are repeatedly ticketed by speed cameras in the same locations in their own neighborhoods may be continuing to speed when they feel it is necessary and just paying the $40 fine as another expense of operating their vehicles.  The data demonstrates that Maryland may simply need to fine drivers a higher amount.  The current fine is not enough of a deterrent.
