A Letter To The Editor: SPEED CAMERA HORROR STORY
On 8/29/2013 my wife was issued a “camera” speeding ticket in Fruitland. I promptly mailed a check. On 11/25/2013 I received a past due notice. I called the phone number listed and someone named “Shawna” verified that the check had been received. Today I received a “vehicle flagging notice’' demanding payment plus various charges in order to renew my licenses. I called the specified number and customer service does not answer. I called Fruitland Police who advised me they have NO connection with the speed enforcement system other than receiving a share of the money. What can I do next?? How can this non-government organization have such governmental power? How can they operate with such autonomy? The first opportunity I can move out of the state of Maryland I am gone.
