Mr. Brian Young District Engineer State Highway Administration District - 3 9300 Kenilworth Avenue Greenbelt, Maryland 207 7 0

Dear Mr. Young: The Prince George's County Police Department has completed the first year of our Speed Enforcement Program. Attached, you will find the evaluation of our seven Maryland State Roadways on which we have deployed cameras. The deployment period of these cameras range from two months to nine months, ending September 24,2012 (the one year anniversary of our program). The time range of deployment for these cameras varies depending on approval by the State Highway Administration, signage completion and camera installation.

You will find that this program has been very successful by a reduction in speeding and accidents on these roadways. As an example, V/oodyard Road (MD 223) at James Madison Middle School, has experienced over a72%o increase in compliance with the posted speed limit in the northbound direction and in the southbound direction, a46%o 'We increase in compliance. have also received positive feedback from the school administrations involved at these locations.
The Prince George's County Police Department is committed to traffic safety on all of our County's roadways. We look forward to our continued partnership with the Maryland State Highway Administration. If you need any additional information, please call me at (301) 772-4740 or contact the Automated Enforcement Project Manager, Major Robert Liberati, at (240) 832-9857

Sincerelv.

Citizen' s feedback/comments

Ms. Lori Windsor of Brandywine Elementary School stated the school loves them. She has noticed motorist have slowed down and seem to be more aware. She works the bus duty to ensure the buses enter and exit the parking lot safely and since the installation of the cameras it has been much easier for the buses and cars. Many parents also comment to the ease of entering and exiting the parking lot as well. She stated the school has a large quantity of car riders and it helps with getting them in and out.

Citizen' s feedback/comments

An employee of John Hansen French Immersion stated that the cameras have helped the buses and other motorist enter and exit the school with more ease. Prior to the cameras the buses would have to sit for a period of time to exit safely. She felt motorist seem more aware and there is a decrease in speed. She stated it is clear who regularly travels the road and who does not. She also stated the PTSA (Parent Teacher Student Association) also feels the
cameras are also a great benefit to the school.
