No. This citation is not considered a "moving violation". It is a civil citation holding the registered owner or lessee responsible for the violation (similar to a parking ticket). NO points cab be assessed for this violation and it will not raise your insurance rates!
If you fail to pay the citation and any late fees in full by the due date, your vehicle registration may be flagged and subject to refusal or suspension. If your registration is flagged, you may owe additional flagging fees to Prince George's County and/or to the Maryland Department of Motor Vehicles. (The MVA will assess a MVA flag fee for each flag imposed. This fee must be paid to the MVA and is in addition to the fine and fees due to Prince George’s County).
The ombudsman can review concerns or questions regarding the County's speed camera program, a speed camera citation, picture quality of the citation, stolen tags/vehicles, transfer of liability, and any other possible concerns on the speed camera citation.
A vehicle registered or leased to you, was photographed by an automatic camera connected to a speed monitoring system. Vehicles exceeding the posted maximum speed limit are detected automatically and two photographs are taken. On each photograph are the date, time, location, and speed of the vehicle when the violation occurred.
