Montgomery County Office of Legislative Oversight Report Finds Speed Cameras Increase Road Safety Click below to view the full report:

Part 1
Part 2

Chevy Chase Village has joined the Cities of Gaithersburg, Rockville, Takoma Park and Montgomery County in deploying speed cameras as part of the Safe Speed program.  The Village has four fixed cameras operating in the community.

Jurisdictions within Montgomery County were granted the authority to operate the cameras by the State of Maryland in 2006.  The pilot program authorized the use of the cameras in residential areas and school zones with speed limits of 35 miles per hour or less, and requires that money from speed camera fines be designated for public safety programs.

The Chevy Chase Village Police Department chooses streets for the Safe Speed program that meet the standards set by the State of Maryland.  The Village‚Äôs camera locations are posted on its website located at
www.chevychasevillagemd.gov.

The goal of the Safe Speed program is to reduce speeding on residential streets and streets near schools in an effort to prevent injuries and fatalities among pedestrians and motorists.  The cameras are an additional tool available to police in speed enforcement.  Officers will continue to enforce speed limits using other techniques such as hand-held radar or laser.  For more information, contact the Chevy Chase Village Police Department Safe Speed Program at 1-866-818-3844 or
