Automated Speed Enforcement (ASE)

The Maryland Department of Transportation State Highway Administration (MDOT SHA) promotes a three-pronged approach to managing speed-related safety problems: egineering, education and enforcement.

Automated Speed Enforcement (ASE) systems manage speed and reduce speed-related crashes. Through an ASE program involving public education and visible enforcement, MDOT SHA seeks to change behavior and urge drivers to do what they already should be doing: drive responsibly, stay alert, and obey the speed limit.

Maryland law allows Automated Speed Enforcement in certain school zones and work zones.
