Towson, Maryland Speed Traps
Right between Perring Parkway and Harford road going either way on the beltway they have the radar that reads your speed to you. 50 feet after that there is a camera.
New speed camera. Speed limit is 30mph and well-hidden camera is set to 42 mph. They can get you going in either direction.
Police car or unmarked car with radar parks in front of or behind another vehicle. They monitor traffic in both directions. In traffic court it is one of the most frequent sources of speeding tickets (and revenue) for the area.
Police car with radar parks on side street and can get vehicles going in either direction. There is no sudden decrease in the speed limit and there is a lot of traffic on this part of the road during busy times. The trap is especially active at times of very little traffic (eg: Sunday mornings, etc)
The entire stretch of road is a giant enforcement zone. Tonight, I saw no fewer than six different police cars belonging to three different agencies in this stretch. One State Trooper cut across two lanes to make a hard right onto Cross-Country to nail someone. A Baltimore County cruiser did a hard U-turn to tail someone. Towson University Police also frequent the area. The County police are by far the most aggressive – they will hide in the driveways, the side streets, and in the frontage road between Register and Stevenson. They especially like the Doctor’s Office just North of Stevenson and the driveways of the Medical Offices near the bottom of the big hill. Don’t go more than five mph over the limit here, and for Heaven’s Sake, make sure your tags are clean – they are quite vigilant in enforcing out-of-date registrations, emissions, and other tag troubles. If you must go through Towson, Charles Street and even Loch Raven Boulevard are much safer.
