Md. town issues 1,100 red-light fines
Westminster, Md., police say they have issued 1,125 citations for violations at five red-light cameras since they went into operation March 15 in the county seat of Carroll County northwest of Baltimore. By contrast, the District, which says it has 49 camera locations, issues more than 6,000 violations a month. Census estimates put Westminster's population at 18,000.
Police Chief Jeff Spaulding says the system is supporting itself. Spaulding has gotten accident data from the camera sites but has not reviewed it. He won't draw conclusions from it because it's too short a time, he said. But he said he believes the cameras change drivers' behavior.
The citations for running the lights are $75.
