Community Traffic Regulations, Enforcement


Written by Anthony Morelli

On February 7, 2020

Residents and visitors must always observe all traffic signs and adhere to the posted speed limit of 25 mph. If winter weather conditions exist, drivers and pedestrians need to be extra cautious while navigating the roads of our beautiful mountain community.

Traffic and parking regulations are outlined on the community website here, under the title Important Documents. Below is a summary of this information.

A Citation Notice will be issued, in accordance with Lake Holiday Policies, Rules and Procedures, for roadway violations. Violations can include speeding, failure to follow traffic rules, failure to observe posted traffic signs (STOP signs) and illegal parking.  Security may document non-compliance with radar guns, video cameras and photographs.

Note: Courtesy notifications will no longer be provided to drivers that fail to observe traffic signs. Rather, a citation will be issued.

The following is an excerpt from PRP 5 (Entry, Road Use and Parking):


Any individual operating a vehicle within the community must observe all traffic rules and regulations relating to:

1. Speed: The maximum speed on any road within Lake Holiday is twenty-five (25) miles per hour, unless otherwise posted. Common sense should dictate slower speeds during periods of inclement weather or when road surface conditions are dangerous.

2. Traffic Signs: All posted traffic signs are to be observed. For example, a stop sign requires coming to a complete stop before proceeding.


1. Private security officers are responsible for the enforcement of Lake Holiday traffic rules, including ensuring that all vehicles have the proper Visitor Pass or bar code decal displayed at all times*.  

 2. Frederick County Sheriff’s deputies are responsible for enforcement of state law and local ordinances for traffic regulations within the Lake Holiday community.

*Courtesy Notices will be issued, in accordance with Lake Holiday Policies, Rules and Procedures, for failure to have a current Lake Holiday bar code decal or Visitor Pass properly displayed on a vehicle within Lake Holiday. Join us as we work together to improve our community. The Safety and Security Committee meets at 7 p.m. the second Monday of each month at the clubhouse.
