Next Year Montgomery County Expects More Revenue from Speed Cameras

By Alpert Schreyer on March 28, 2013

According to Montgomery County Executive Ike Leggett’s proposed budget for fiscal year 2014, Montgomery County police are expecting a seven percent increase in revenue (approximately $14.6 million) in fines from speed camera citations.  Currently, $13.6 million in revenue has been projected for the current fiscal year, 2013.

2013 Revenue to Exceed Projection

As reported by The Washington Examiner, Leggett’s proposed budget also notes police believe the total revenue for 2013 will exceed projection and be around $15.8 million.  The 2013 fiscal year ends on June 30th.

While speed camera revenue is increasing, red-light revenue is expected to stay the same — approximately $3.6 million in 2014.  Camera revenues were at their peak in 2009, when $20 million in revenue was taken in and nearly 505,000 tickets were issued in Montgomery County.  In fiscal year 2012, 330,000 tickets were issued.

Estimates Exceeded Since 2009

According to Montgomery County Police spokesperson Robert Ladany, the county has taken in more revenue from camera tickets than estimates predicted since 2009.  He was not sure why that has been the case for the past three years.

Maryland and District of Columbia counties take in millions by using camera ticketing; however, traffic enforcement cameras are not permitted in parts of Virginia.

An investigation by The Baltimore Sun earlier this year uncovered unwarranted ticketing of motorists by Baltimore City cameras along with important inaccuracies.  That set in motion an effort on the part of Maryland lawmakers to look into placing more strict regulations on traffic enforcement cameras such as speed cameras.
