700 block of Maryland Avenue NE (Photo via Photo via Google Maps)Maryland Avenue NE has a new camera to catch speeders.

The Metropolitan Police Department installed the camera on the 700 block of Maryland Avenue, near the Northeast Neighborhood Library. The device will monitor cars driving on the street’s southwest-bound lanes, which have a speed limit of 25 miles per hour.

Police won’t start writing speeding tickets until June, however. Starting today, speeders only will receive warnings, until a 30-day education phase is over.

The devices are among six new speed cameras that police revealed Friday. The Maryland Avenue camera is the only new one in MPD’s First District, which includes Capitol Hill and Near Northeast

The First District now has more than two dozen of the devices, including cameras on the 600 and 1200 blocks of Maryland Avenue NE.
