LANHAM, Md. (CBSDC) — A Maryland state delegate who originally proposed to expand speed camera enforcement in Prince George’s County is reportedly withdrawing that bill in favor of a statewide one.
Del. Dereck Davis of Mitchellville told the Gazette that he will withdraw a bill to increase speed camera operation in the second largest county in Maryland and instead will craft statewide legislation regarding the devices.
Davis’ initial proposal would have extended speed camera operation in Prince George’s County to 24 hours a day, seven days a week in school zones.
Davis told the Gazette that he is submitting paperwork to the Prince George’s County House Delegation to withdraw the bill on Tuesday.
Speed cameras are currently allowed to operate on weekdays in school zones from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m., according to state law.
