    Speed cameras are heading to Charles County.

    The Charles County Sheriff's Office will launch the new program about July 9 at nine school zones. The sheriff's office said the program is designed to reduce driver speeds.

    There will be a 30-day warning phase, during which motorists who exceed the speed limit by 12 miles per hour or more in county school zones will receive warning notices. Afterward, a fine of $40 will be a given to motorists who exceed the posted speed limit. No license points will be assigned, and the citations are not reported to insurance companies.
