Report: Police Aggressively Issue Tickets On ICC

"Police officers are ticketing speeders aggressively,” Montgomery County Councilman Phil Andrews said, according to a report by The Gazette.

Report: Police Aggressively Issue Tickets On ICC

Speeders beware, police are ticketing the Intercounty Connector at a high rate.

Over the last three months, police officers on the ICC "issued about 10 speeding citations and warnings per day," The Gazette  reported, including a total of 887 citations and warnings issued for speeding between October and December.

Montgomery County Councilman Phil Andrews (D-Dist. 3) of Gaithersburg said he's heard from constituents that “police officers are ticketing speeders aggressively” on the ICC, according to the report.

The ICC is patrolled by the Maryland Transportation Authority Police, according to the report.

Andrews has been vocal on ICC issues of late, calling the road overpriced and underused in December.

The road's 55 mph speed limit has also come under fire. The Baltimore Sun reported in late December that an engineering study of the ICC has concluded that the speed of the highway can safely be raised to 60 mph, pending an analysis of crash data. 

Read the full story on the ICC's ticketing rates on The Gazette.

SPEAK OUT: Have you or someone you know been ticketed for speeding while driving on the ICC? Do you think an increase in speed limit  on the road will reduce speeding tickets? Tell us in the comments!
