News from Southern District

MTA Police Update (reported at SDPCRC meeting)

 ·         Cell phone abuse while driving is “out of control.”

v  The officers emphasized that it is against the law to even HOLD a phone in your hand while driving, even if the call is on speakerphone. 

v  It can be on the seat next to you or in a holder on the dashboard, but not in your hand. 

v  It’s an $82 ticket for a cell phone violation.

·       It’s illegal for a driver to wear two headphones/ear buds in the car.  Drivers need to hear emergency vehicles.  Drivers are allowed only one headphone/ear bud.

·      The construction will continue on the 95, 395, and 895 corridors (it had stopped for the holidays but is coming back).

·       In 2014, just one MTA detachment (the one covering our local 95, 395, and 895 corridors) removed 414 drunk drivers from the roads.

·      The same detachment also arrested a police impersonator and a heroin dealer who was transporting across state lines to Brooklyn, MD.

·       MTA Police also have authority on our City streets and work cooperatively with all local police jurisdictions.

·         It’s now the law to move over one lane (if you can do it safely) for all emergency vehicles at the side of the road, including tow trucks.

Hear Ye! Hear Ye!


Please be aware that Area 9 residents have lost the privilege of evening and weekend parking at Federal Hill Prep. New signage will be posted to reflect this change.  Violators will be towed.

It is sad that the actions of those who consistently disregarded the parking signs cost the neighborhood this much needed parking.

Please keep this in mind if you take advantage of the evening and weekend parking in the Digital Harbor High School lot.  Use of the lot is a courtesy extended to the neighborhood by the school administration.  We have already had reminders and gentle warnings from DHHS because there are those that abuse the privilege and do not follow the posted restrictions.

If we lose the opportunity to park in the DHHS lot we have no one to blame but ourselves.  Please be considerate.
