Everyone should always slow down in a school zone. But a camera in the the "XX00 Block of _______Avenue" because of "community requests"?

This is why God made radar detectors. Get one.

Don't speed, no problems. Don't run red-lights, no problems. Not a hard concept is it?

We, unfortunately, live in a day and age where distracted and aggressive driving is rampant and the use of speed cameras will bring added safety to Montgomery County drivers and pedestrians, particularly students.

I have a hard time having sympathy for people that get tickets when the locations are all over the news. It isn't that hard to go the speed limit but especially when the locations are listed!

They put a camera on "Gold Mine Road." At least the county has a sense of humor (irony?).
