    Plano has a system of 19 red-light cameras that cover 16 intersections. The city has had cameras since 2006.

    Drivers, watch your speed on the roads, especially through Montgomery County. A brand new speed camera is up and running in Takoma Park.

    It's located in the 900 block of East West Highway near the intersection of New Hampshire Avenue.

    Until 12:00 a.m. Saturday, drivers caught going 12 miles over the speed limit were only sent a warning. Now, violators will get a $40 ticket in the mail.

    Takoma Park officials hope the program will cut down on speeders, which in turn could reduce the risk of accidents.
