If you're not already in the habit, it's time to start following the speed limit on McDonogh Road.
That's because, come Monday, there will be a speed trailer positioned there, and Radar enforcement later in the week, according to police.
"After an educational period, we will begin aggressive radar enforcement later next week," said Lt. Michael DiCara, assistant commander for the Baltimore County Police Department's Pikesville precinct.
The trailer will help show motorists about how fast they're going, said Capt. John McGann, the new commander assigned to the precinct on July 11. It will not be linked to ticketing as there is no speed camera inside, McGann added.
After a few days of operating the trailer, the stakes get higher when police bring out their radar equipment to enforce the speed limit.
At that point, motorists speeding along the stretch of McDonogh Road between Winands Road and Painters Mill Lane will be ticketed, DiCara said.
Residents of neighborhoods along McDonogh Road brought up the speeding issue to police on Tuesday, during the precinct's monthly Police & Community Relations Council meeting.
In February, two people died after a collision along McDonogh Road at Star Circle, and police said speed was likely a factor.
