In West Virginia, code section §17C-6-7a prohibits use of cameras to detect or prove traffic law violations.


In Virginia speed enforcement cameras are illegal. Red light cameras are legal, but the number of them is regulated by State law § 15.2-968.1


In Washington DC there are seven different types of traffic enforcement cameras. Below is a table containing each type of camera and how it should be mapped.

Camera Type Icon Used

Gridlock Cameras Red Light Camera
Stop Sign Cameras Red Light Camera
Pedestrian Right of Way Cameras Red Light Camera
Oversized Vehicle Cameras Not Mapped


Reference the DC MPD Automated Traffic Enforcement page to verify camera locations.


In Maryland speed cameras are authorized for use in the following areas: school zones throughout the state, work zones on freeways and major highways, and on streets in Montgomery County. Speed cameras can be mounted to a pole, concealed in a metal cabinet on the ground, or mounted on a trailer or vehicle parked on the shoulder, such as ones used in work zones. Most speed cameras in Maryland will not issue a ticket unless the vehicle is exceeding the speed limit by at least 12 mph; however, when setting the speed of a camera in the editor, use the speed limit of the road. Many speed cameras in school zones are portable and moved on a regular basis, in some cases weekly. This is usually indicated on the website and may include a rotation schedule. These reported camera locations should not be on the map. Red light cameras are also authorized for use throughout the state. Some red light cameras also include radar, and enforce speed limits. This is especially true in Baltimore City.

Other camera types

These are cameras or signs that either provide driver feedback or are used for traffic control such as DOT monitor cameras and emergency vehicle detectors. These devices CAN NOT issue tickets and should not be mapped.
