Police are not experts on street design or what makes a street safe for all of its users. That expertise resides in the County Department of Transportation (MCDOT) and therefore, the management and implementation of the County’s automated enforcement program should be located within MCDOT, not the county police department. To resolve this problem, the State Delegates and Senators who represent Montgomery County are considering a bill, MC 4-21, that would authorize moving the automated traffic enforcement program from the County Police Department to MCDOT. The County Delegation will vote on this bill on or around December 17.
Please email your state Senator and Delegates telling them you support the passage of MC 4-21.
