New Speed Camera Installed at WhiteOakMiddle School to Calm Traffic

To promote pedestrian safety as local children started school, County Executive Leggett announced the installation of new speed cameras at the White Oak Middle School, where speeding has been a chronic problem. Over a seven-day period, Police clocked nearly 6,000 vehicles traveling more than 60 miles an hour on New Hampshire Avenue near the school. The posted speed limit is 40 miles per hour.  
 
Speed cameras are successfully slowing traffic in neighborhoods and near schools. For more information on the cameras, including their locations, visit the Montgomery County Police Department’s website.
