Public Notice: Speed Camera to be Installed Near Jonathan Hager Elementary

Pursuant to MD Transportation Code §21-809, notice is hereby given that the City of Hagerstown will be operating a speed monitoring system at Hagers Crossing Drive within 200 yards of Jonathan Hager Elementary School (12615 Sedgwick Way), effective April 8, 2017.

Since the implementation of the Safe Speed for Students Program in April of 2012, the City has reported reduced numbers of drivers exceeding the posted speed limit by 12 miles per hour or more in our school zones.

The Hagerstown Police Department currently operates 11 automated speed enforcement systems across the city within school zones. The system is administered by a Hagerstown police officer who is certified in operations. Drivers who exceed the posted speed limit by 12 miles per hour or more in these areas between the hours of 6:00 a.m. - 8:00 p.m. Monday-Friday will be cited. Tickets are issued to the registered owner of the vehicle.

Drivers are charged a $40 penalty, which is discounted $5 if paid within 7 days of receiving the ticket. If the ticket is not paid within 30 days, there will be an additional $20 late fee.

Drivers who are cited will not receive points on their license, nor will the citation appear on an individual's driving record. In addition, the ticket will not be reported to a driver's insurance company.
