BALTIMORE (AP) - Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley says state law bans speed camera contractors from being paid based on the number of tickets issued.
The governor sponsored the legislation authorizing the devices statewide, and reiterated his support Tuesday for them. However, the governor told The Baltimore Sun that state law prohibits charging by volume of tickets issued. The newspaper reports Baltimore City and Baltimore County use a so-called bounty system and the city is negotiating a new contract with a vendor.
