Maryland Legislator Wants Fines For Faulty Speed Cams

Posted: Updated:

MARYLAND - Maryland state Delegate Jon Cardin thinks speed camera companies and local governments should be penalized $1,000 for each "bogus" ticket.

According to the Baltimore Sun, Cardin also wants local governments in the state to turn in "regular speed camera audits" to the General Assembly.  The delegate also proposes tickets feature time stamps on the two photograps mailed to drivers as a way to ensure accuracy.

The Baltimore Sun conducted a study where they found inaccuracies with five of Baltimore's 83 automated speed cameras, reportedly showing there's no way to verify the alleged speeds printed on tickets issued by Baltimore County, Howard County and the State Highway Administration.
