Speed Camera Pilot Program

The goal of the Speed Camera Pilot Program is to change the behavior of drivers and make our roads saferSpeed cameras will improve the safety of our roads by protecting pedestrians and slowing down motorists, especially around congested and vulnerable locations.



There are no points or insurance impacts resulting from a citation. An escalating fine structure, starting at 10 mph over the limit, maxes out at $100:

  • $50 for 10-14 mph over limit.
  • $75 for 15-19 mph over limit.
  • $100 for 20 mph or more over limit.


 *The 30-day warning period for the Oakton High School speed camera (Blake Lane near Sutton Road) begins April 29, 2024. Fines will begin after the warning period.

Speed Camera Locations

Following the six-month pilot, countywide photo speed enforcement would be implemented in two phases:

  1. Phase 1, in FY 2024, would include 50 photo speed enforcement cameras distributed between school and work zones.
  2. Phase 2, in FY 2025, would add 30 cameras for school zones.
