Have you seen people zooming through the school zone on Stevenson Lane?

Not for long, if the Baltimore County Police Department has anything to say about it.

The department is in the process of installing speed cameras at four new locations, including Stoneleigh Elementary.

The cameras will be operational "in the near future," Baltimore County police said on Feb. 3, advising drivers to adjust their speed now.

The following schools are getting cameras:

Police said the existing camera by Stoneleigh Elementary in the 800 block of Regester Avenue would stay in place, in addition to the new one on Stevenson Lane.

Once the cameras are installed, drivers will have a 30-day warning period; then citations will go into effect.

Drivers are in violation if they are going at least 12 mph over the posted speed limit, according to police.

The cameras will operate Monday through Friday between 6 a.m. and 8 p.m., including during the summer months and on weekdays when school is not in session, police said.
