Md. Drivers Should Watch the Camera Program
The pilot program in Montgomery County has worked quite well during the past two years, and this bill to extend the cameras statewide in school zones and road work zones seems quite reasonable in concept. But it may still need some fine tuning after people see how individual jurisdictions set up their operations. Specifically, are the cameras really in school zones and is the money from fines going to traffic safety programs?
Lon Anderson of AAA Mid-Atlantic, a supporter of the legislation, raised those issues earlier this week. He says that if it turns out jurisdictions use the cameras to raise money for their general funds rather than to curb speeding, then there's always next year in the General Assembly.
