City Sees 80 percent Reduction in Violations in Recent Months
The City of Rockville started to operate red light cameras at three new locations in March and began issuing tickets for violations after an initial grace period that ended April 14.
The cameras are part of the City’s effort to improve vehicle and pedestrian safety in Rockville. Cameras in other locations have proven effective, with the City experiencing an 80 percent drop in the number of violations in the first seven months since new technology was implemented. more
Rockville fared well in the state legislative session that wrapped up in April, with the City poised to receive additional Highway User Revenue and Police Protection Aid in the fiscal year 2014 state budget.
State lawmakers approved a one-time restoration of Highway User Revenue of $15.4 million to municipalities. Based on the latest Maryland Department of Transportation estimates, Rockville may receive about $1.1 million from this restored revenue source. more
