General Information

Automated Speed Enforcement

The City of Greenbelt is now one of many jurisdictions in the Washington Metropolitan area using automated speed enforcement to reduce traffic crashes, pedestrian accidents, and most importantly save lives. The program provides automated enforcement in school zones. Speed Cameras provide police with one more tool to protect pedestrians, school children, and other motorists by targeting aggressive driving behaviors. 

The fine for violating the posted speed limit is $40.00 for each violation. Violators traveling 12 miles over the posted speed limit will activate the speed camera which will result in a violation notice being issued via the US Mail. All violators may pay the fine or request a court date to contest the speeding violation.

The ultimate goal of the City of Greenbelt automated speed enforcement program is to save lives and prevent injuries. However, there are several other goals and benefits of the program:

  • Reduce speed in school zones.
  • Change driver behavior through voluntary compliance with traffic laws
  • Reduce accident severity and the financial impact on the economy
  • Educate the public and increase public awareness
  • Augment the efforts of traditional law enforcement.
