Rockville, Maryland Speed Traps
Dual camera enforcement of 25 mile per hour zone directly in front of Rockville High School. Coming from Twinbrook, Old Baltimore is downhill and it is very easy to exceed the 25 mph speed limit.
Safe Speed Cameras are set up at the 4600 block of both east bound and west bound Randolph Road. The speed limit is 35mph but the trap is at the bottom of the hill so if not careful your speed will increase with gravity. They photo ticket starting at 40mph so ride your brakes!
Police have hired a private company that utilizes a white or blue, late model Ford Windstar minivan with dark tinted windows equipped with photo radar in the 200 block of Baltimore Rd. on the stretch between Rt28 and S. Stonetsreet av, near the Rockville METRO station.It is a highly travelled road in a residential neighborhood. The posted speed is 25 and the signs do warn of photo radar. It is merely a money maker for the municipality as they are slowing down no one!
Twinbrook Parkway between Baltimore Rd & Viers Mill, parked photo radar unit (usually white minivan) during morning and afternoon commutes. New, agressive enforcement.
On Randolph road is a steep downhill grade toward Veirs Mill Rd. If you take your foot off the gas pedal and nothing else you will be well above the 25 mph speed limit before the officer’s step out from behind a car and point some device at you. They occasionally aim at people coming down the hill. Shady trees in the summer make them harder to see. Normally, I shift to a lower gear, as a preference to riding the brakes. They park behind bushes at the bottom of the hill, or a nearby street,such as Collin Drive.
