MD Senate Passes Camera Bill
The bill to allow local governments throughout Maryland to use speed cameras passed the state Senate today by a vote of 26 to 21. The measure, which also allows the state to set up the cameras in road work zones, must also pass the House of Delegates.
Senators amended their bill twice. One amendment reduced the proposed fines from $75 to $40, which matches the amount of the fine in the Montgomery County pilot program, which began last May. The other amendment exempts volunteer rescue workers who are acting in the line of duty when they pass through a camera zone. The House also amended its bill to set the fine at $40.
