You? You never speed. Wouldn’t even think of it. But for your neighbors who do, Takoma Park police recently released a list of locations of speed cameras in town.
There are five fixed-pole speed cameras and three portable speed camera units. They are located in the:
400 block of Ethan Allen Avenue, eastbound.
500 block of Ethan Allen Avenue, westbound.
7100 block of New Hampshire Avenue, northbound.
7200 block of New Hampshire Avenue, southbound.
900 block of University Boulevard, eastbound.
900 block of East West Highway, westbound.
7400 block of Carroll Avenue, northbound.
7400 block of Carroll Avenue, southbound.
Also, two stretches of road in Takoma Park have been approved as Safe Speed Corridors, a new approach from Montgomery County police that authorizes officers to ticket speeders on any stretch of road, rather than just as they’re crossing a fixed spot. The corridors are on:
Northbound and southbound New Hampshire Avenue, from the 6900 block to the 7600 block.
- Eastbound University Boulevard East, from the 900 block to the 1300 block.
