Prince George’s Co. lawmakers want more speed camera exceptions


There’s a long list of gruesome, deadly accidents that have occurred over the years along Church Road in Bowie, Maryland.

At the top of that list is one that happened last year — when 14-year-old Kamal Nashid was struck and killed  while jogging through a crosswalk.

What was once a winding, country road is now much busier, as several new neighborhoods have been built. With the new development, the county rebuilt a stretch of the road just north of Route 50 to include more lanes of traffic.

And with even more development planned along just that stretch, lawmakers in the Prince George’s County delegation are pushing for more changes to the state’s speed camera law so they can install one near where Nashid was hit and killed.
