Ticket cams — we may not like 'em, but they're a necessary evil – February 28, 2016
The City of Frederick has only lowered one speed limit since the speed cameras were implemented. In 2015, the area of North Market Street in front of The Banner School was reduced to 25 MPH from 35 MPH. The speed limit on North Market Street was 35 MPH starting just north of the old Coca Cola plant. The speed camera is just opposite of East Street next to the entrance to Rose Hill Manor. By the City reducing all of North Market Street to a speed limit of 25 MPH a potential speed trap was actually eliminated as the previous signage indicated that motorists could travel 35 MPH almost all the way up to the site of the speed camera
