Warning period for Prince George’s speed cameras ends Wednesday

If Prince George’s County’s new speed cameras catch you speeding, don’t expect to get off with just a warning.

The 30-day grace period for the newly installed cameras is officially over, and starting Wednesday the county will issue citations — complete with a $40 fine — to drivers traveling 12 miles per hour or more above the posted speed limit.

The cameras, which debuted Aug. 22, operate from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Friday within a half-mile of two schools in Fort Washington.

The schools, Isaac J. Gourdine Middle School and Tayac Elementary School, are located in the 8600 and 8700 blocks of Allentown Road.
