ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) -- Annapolis police have a message for speeders caught on camera: no more freebies.

The monthlong grace period for speed cameras in the state capital ends Monday. Police say drivers caught going 12 mph over the posted speed limit will incur $40 fines. Speeders will get tickets in the mail.

Maj. Scott Baker is the speed camera program director. He tells The Capital of Annapolis ( ) that the city has issued more than 300 warnings since March 5.

The city has three cameras, one fixed and two mounted inside Fort Escape sport-utility vehicles. They will target speeders in school zones, and they'll only take pictures on weekdays between 6 a.m. and 8 p.m. All the potential camera locations are noted with signs.
