Both ends of Hermanville rd rake up about 10 accidents a year. Just a small single lane strip but plenty of speeding and impatient people.
It’s all of southern Maryland, speed cameras will solve about 75 percent of the problem
Speed cameras will force people to slow down or open up their wallets
Yup. Been saying that for years. They can move them around based on the # of accidents. Stoplight cameras would be a big help too.
Majority of these accidents are not speed. It is distracted driving. Speed cams will not fix that. Come up with something else more intelligent if you think you have the “solutions”.
‘Cameras’ will do N-O-T-H-I-N-G to reduce distracted drivers…the lion’s share of those causing collisions.
Distracted driving is a huge reason for these accidents but speed is absolutely a part of the problem. I live right across from the post office in park hall and I will tell you a lot of those accidents out at hermanville are from people speeding right there. The big hill + the turn on/off hermanville + speed is what is causing so many of those accidents. People fly up and down Rt. 5 and people turning on/off of hermanville pull right out in front of cars. Speed is absolutely a problem throughout Southern Maryland. People act like doing 15-20 over the speed limit is going to get them where they are going in a quarter of the time, new flash it won’t you will get there a whole 3 mins faster, if you even make it.
