Over the past several weeks, residents may have noticed the Upper Marlboro Police Department has stepped up its presence along Town Roadways known to have the highest speed/traffic violations. Officers have also been standing by at scheduled school bus pick-up and drop off locations within Town to ensure drivers obey the School Bus Stop lights and that students safely get on/off the bus. The Upper Marlboro Police would like to remind drivers that the max Speed Limit within Town is 25MPH, with several roadways with 15MPH limits.
