(Columbia, MD) — Speed cameras will soon be going up in Howard County after lawmakers there approved the measure on a four-to-one vote yesterday. A total of eight cameras will take pictures of drivers speeding through school zones beginning later this fall with two of them set up in mobile van units that can go anywhere in the county. The cost of running the program is expected to get close to a million dollars, with one-point-two-million dollars in revenue estimated to be generated. More than 20 amendments to the bill were offered and most of them came from Republican Greg Fox, who provided the one vote against the program.
