A variety of factors are used to determine the automated speed enforcement deployment locations, including:
When a resident receives a citation, he/she must respond within 30 calendar days (including weekends) of the date on the citation. If the citation is not paid in full within 60 days of issuance, the Motor Vehicle Administration (MVA) will be notified to flag the vehicle license plate (Maryland plates only).
If the citation is not paid in full within 90 days of issuance, the City of Bowie will begin collection efforts.
Payment processing time is included within the 30-day period. The day after the issuance (mail) date on the citation counts as day one.
The entire speed camera system undergoes a thorough self-check prior to and at the end of each deployment. The results of the testing are captured in the computer and are recorded. The cameras will only operate if all the components are working properly and will automatically shut down in the event an error is detected. The equipment must then be re-tested and manually re-started before recording additional images.
Yes, you can request that the operator of the camera be present at court. Send your request in writing to: City of Bowie Safe Speed Program P.O. Box 889 Bowie, MD 20718
