Maryland considers more seven more speed cameras on Indian Head Highway

Maryland lawmakers this week will consider adding more speed cameras along Indian Head Highway, a little more than a month after a man was killed while sitting in an SUV stopped at a red light.

The General Assembly’s Environment and Transportation Committee has scheduled a hearing Thursday on a measure that would expand the use of speed cameras along Route 210, a busy straightaway through Prince George’s County that has long had a reputation as a speedway.

John B. Townsend II, a spokesman for AAA Mid-Atlantic, said the measure would authorize the placement of seven additional speed cameras. The first and only camera so far became active in October.
