Five new red light cameras were added Tuesday, using stationary cameras that use sensors with traffic control signals to record motor vehicles entering an intersection during a red light signal.
Those cameras are operational 24 hours a day, seven days a week and the fine is $75 for an offense.
The five new red-light cameras will be installed at the following intersections:
- Cold Spring Lane and Falls Road
- Eastern Avenue and Patterson Park Avenue
- North Avenue and North Wolfe Street
- Pennsylvania Avenue and Dolphin Street
- Martin Luther King Boulevard and Fayette Street
Baltimore’s ATVES uses automated speed, red light and commercial vehicle height monitoring system cameras to promote safe driving habits in the City, a Department of Transportation release said.
Another system camera is used to record images of commercial vehicles traveling on a truck restricted roadway, which are posted and signed in Baltimore City.
The vehicle’s height conveys to the monitoring system that the vehicle passing the camera is a truck. When a truck is detected by a camera system, photos and video are taken of the truck from the front to get the registration identification of the vehicle’s cab.
Vehicle height monitoring systems cameras are operational 24 hours a day, every day of the year, where posted (signed).
The fine for a Commercial Vehicle Height Monitoring system violation is: First Offense – Warning, Second Offense – $125.00, Third or Subsequent Offenses – $250.00 each.MORE NEWS: Siakam Scores 31 To Help Raptors Beat Wizards 102-90
