The Baltimore City Department of Transportation (BCDOT) has installed automated speed cameras along the Jones Falls Expressway (JFX) within city limits set to go into effect on April 14.

Starting on Thursday, April 14, a 90-day warning period for speed citations will began along the JFX for drivers who go 12 miles or more above the speed limit. Drivers will receive the warning by mail, according to BCDOT.

After the 90-day warning period, those who receive an automated speed enforcement citation must pay a $40 fine.

The speed cameras are located in areas where there have been high incidents of speeding and accidents. Test cameras have reported speeds up to 173 miles per hour, according to the transportation department.

The camera locations for the launch of the warning period are located in northbound and southbound directions where I-83 intersects west 41st Street.
