Baltimore City is launching a “Don’t Block the Box” campaign. The goal is to reduce traffic backups and safety issues by fining motorists who block the intersection.
As reported by The Baltimore Sun:
Starting May 1, the city Department of Transportation will issue warnings to motorists who block intersections during red lights.
On June 1, the agency will begin issuing $90 fines that come with a point on a motorist’s driving license.
The campaign will include safety messages and signage posted throughout the City.
