Speed camera ticketing begins along Indian Head Highway following numerous deadly crashes

Speed camera ticketing begins Wednesday in Prince George's County at an intersection long considered one of the most dangerous in the region.

The speed camera is in place at the intersection of Old Fort Road and Indian Head Highway. Earlier this year, two people were killed near that intersection. AAA Mid-Atlantic says that at least 47 fatal crashes occurred on Indian Head Highway between 2007 and 2017.
