The month-long warning phase for red light cameras has begun. After 30 days, if you get caught running a red light, you'll get a $75 ticket. 

The warning phase for Baltimore City’s speed cameras is over, which means if one of those cameras catches you speeding, you’ll get a $40 ticket.

According to the Baltimore City DOT "Photos and video are taken from the rear of the vehicle with the red light signal visible, both before entering the intersection and while the vehicle is in the intersection."  The cameras are operational 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and will not be shut down for holidays. 

Baltimore's speed camera system was shut down in 2013 after it was discovered cameras were issuing speeding tickets to cars that weren’t violating the speed limit. Mayor Catherine Pugh announced the implementation of the new cameras in May and said that she hoped the new camera system would renew Baltimoreans’ confidence and bring revenue to the city.
