Rockville Red Light Cameras

Remember to stop completely before turning right on red.

In an effort to improve pedestrian safety at Rockville’s busy intersections, Rockville has recently installed new red light cameras around town. The cameras video tape cars that make a right turn on red without coming to a complete stop.

The camera creates a photo sequence and video if the vehicle is travelling at or above 13 miles per hour through the stop line or crosswalk. Each video and photo is reviewed by Police Department staff to determine if a violation has occurred.

According to Maryland Law Traffic Article 21-202, a vehicle facing a steady red signal must come to a complete stop at the stop line or, if there is no stop line, prior to the crosswalk. After coming to a complete stop, the vehicle may enter the intersection and turn unless a no turn on red sign is present.

Motorists who receive a citation are able to view a video clip of the violation online by logging onto with the citation and PIN number provided on the ticket. Motorists who believe they have received a ticket in error may contact the RCPD at 240-314-8900 for additional assistance.
