Starting today, a speed camera will be catching motorists speeding along the 900 block of University Boulevard in Takoma Park.

This portable speed camera is just a block away from the Capital One Bank that was robbed Friday, and it will issue tickets to motorists driving 12 mph over the speed limit. But those tickets won't carry fines until Feb. 14 — until then, motorists will just get warnings.

This is the fifth camera in the city and it's going up in the Takoma-Langley Crossroads area, which has seen numerous accidents resulting in pedestrian fatalities. You can see a map of all of Takoma Park's speed cameras below:
