The City of Greenbelt Police Department, in an effort to help save citizen's lives, has partnered with Howard county, Maryland in initiating a red light camera program.

The Danger of Running Red Lights

The National Highway and Traffic Safety Administration estimates that drivers who run red lights are responsible for an estimated 92,000 vehicle crashes each year. About 950 of these involve fatalities, and the numbers are rising. Experience has shown that some of the most serious personal injuries occurring in motor vehicle collisions occur as the result of red light violations.

The force of a side impact collision, directly into the passenger compartment, greatly increases the likelihood of serious personal injury. This type of collision is the type most likely to result in personal injury. Please visit the Howard County Police site to learn more about the success of this program.


Payments can be mailed in to:

Greenbelt Police Department
