To enhance public safety within Sudlersville School Zones and safeguard our children, the Town of Sudlersville has approved Automated Speed Enforcement.
Speed Enforcement Cameras will be at various locations within a ½ mile radius of a school, within town limits. The radar camera will capture images of a vehicle exceeding the posted speed limit by 12mph or more and the registered owner will receive a citation in the mail for a $40 fine. Automated speed enforcement citations are considered civil violations, so no license points are assessed.
Why is Sudlersville choosing to utilize this type of technology?
Speeding is a serious problem nationwide. In school zones, staying alert and obeying the posted speed limit is imperative for the safety of students and other pedestrians.
The safety of kids is our #1 goal! We hope this will encourage motorists to obey posted speed limits and slow down!
