WASHINGTON - A Prince George's County councilmember stopped for speeding released a second statement Wednesday after receiving some public criticism.
"I take full responsibility for my actions and I apologize to my constituents, my County Council colleagues, and Prince George's County," Karen Toles wrote. "In addition to paying the appropriate fine, I will not be driving a county owned vehicle until voluntarily completing a driver improvement course to ensure my safety and the safety of others."
Toles was issued a warning for the speeding infraction last week, but did receive a $90 violation for an unsafe lane change. Police said Tuesday that a warning is consistent with the discretion officers have in handling speeding motorists.
