About the only thing Montgomery County has to offer is a whole lotta this:


Still, there are a few that I like on my way to a loop I have that cuts mostly through Howard County. Keep an eye on the forums because I'll post a ride once the 50-60 temps are here to stay and we get a good rain to wash this sandy salt off the roads.

Dude, MoCo is soooooo police-SATURATED these days! I work at NIH and live about 3 miles north of Wheaton, and if I take Georgia or Connecticut Aves on my way home, I ALWAYS see >2 MoCo cop cars. I've been hardcore vigilant to not exceed 10 over limit, even letting Corollas pass me because the sharks are swimming in these waters. A few nights ago I had a MoCoPoPo charger sidle up into my RH blindspot on Randolph and just follow me for a while. I knew it was a cop right away without a visual because that's their MO. They bank on me blipping the throttle or screwing up somehow. And I know these guys are running my plate during this time as well. I slowed down to about 30 so he could get a really good look, guy got bored eventually, and he bailed. It felt good, and I was saying to myself, "Not today, my friend. Not today."

Yes, more popping up all the time. Speeding in MoCo has become a game of such calculation and determination that it's just not a sustainable lifestyle. They won, and they've spent A LOT of money to win. Honestly, for this and many other reasons, many of which have to do with traffic and poor urban planning, I mark Montgomery County as the very worst place I have ever lived, even moreso than Baltimore.

Yea MoCo sucks. I went to HoCo to check out some more new roads two days ago to piece a nice ride together for warmer weather. I definitely found a cop sitting in a good spot off of a good backroad, luckily I was only doing +5 over since I didn't know the road yet. Luckily he didn't follow me or attempt to.

OSD, has it really gotten that bad over there? I'm typically only over that way for triva night at hooters in rockville. I haven't really noticed a lot of speed cameras cept for on randolph. Now red light cameras, ive never seen SO many as ive seen in Columbia.

Are these new speed cams obvious? IE, white lines on pavement for the easy give away?


I believe i can see the future;
because everyday i repeat the
same routine.

Mostly the speedy scameras are placed on main roads in school zones so if you see a school zone, you should assume there is a scamera set up. They all are the typical box with two strobes on separate poles, reflective lines on the pavement, all that. Where they have really exploded in number is north of Crockville, in Gaithersburg, Germantown, Darnestown, etc. What's really amazing is out in Poolesville there are like 20, almost one per resident . Ha ha, that's an exaggeration but there are a few out there.

My experience is that the cameras are not as much of a risk as are the sheer number of cruisers MoCo puts on the streets. It is absolutely saturated. My commute is from NIH to the Apsen Hill area, north of Wheaton, north of Georgia and Randolph intersection. If I take main roads in the evening, I ALWAYS see at least one county cruiser. At night they like to sidle up into my blind spot and just run with me. Whenever I see headlights approaching quickly from behind and then stop just behind me, I know it's a cop waiting to see what I'll do. I just make sure I'm at the limit or below. They run my tag, get bored, and within a minute or two, they zip on by.

Montgomery county has invested enormous amounts of money in their traffic enforcement infrastructure. In order to keep it out of the red, they absolutely must give out tickets with urgency. If everyone were to obey all the traffic laws and stop getting tickets, the juggernaut would collapse very quickly.

Those mobile speed cameras are out in full force in MoCo.
They're cameras setup in minivans. They just park those on the side of the road. I saw one in front of Sherwood Elementary School on Rte 108.
I slowed down to 25mph and was able to avoid a ticket. The damn fool behind me was tailgating me because she was in a big hurry to get to work. Too bad I saved her from getting a ticket!

It's the county's ATM machine....
