County police hope to have 72 up and running by the end of 2014.
Prince George's County police are planning to install dozens of additional red light cameras in 2013, WTOP reports. Police will replace 25 existing cameras first before bringing the total up to 72 by the end of 2014, according to the station. Department analysts will look at traffic data to determine where to place the new equipment. Though many drivers have complained about speed cameras, Maj. Robert V. Liberati told WTOP that public reaction to red light cameras has been more positive. The county installed 72 new speed cameras in 2012, according to the station. Tickets from red-light cameras are $75, while those from speed cameras are $40. Read more from WTOP.
