New Report Makes Some Want More Speed Cameras Statewide

BALTIMORE (WJZ) — A new report credits speed cameras with preventing deaths and serious injuries in Maryland. Now some want speed cameras on the fast track across the state.

Amy Yensi has more on the findings.

The research focuses on one Maryland county that’s been using speed cameras since 2007. The study says that program should be a model for the entire country.

If you’re speeding in Montgomery County, beware. More than 355,000 times in the last year, speeders were caught by one of its 92 speed cameras.

Only a total idiot asks for more tyranny.

@ $40 per ticket, it couldn't be the $4,400,000.00 annual revenue that has anything to do with somebody telling the MSM to spread this story, could it?

Neither one of you have a clue what you're talking about. If you could see the carnage would change your mind. This is, in your own words, a "tyranny" or "revenue" that you can simply avoid by slowing down. Easy enough.

You don't like them until it's someone in your family that is hurt. :(

I say these things need to be voted on by the people.

They are unconstitutional.

If speeding is so important to safety... "for the children", stopping it immediately with boots on the ground is the answer, not taxing it months after the fact. All this is is a slick revenue stream without the overhead and liability of officers in the street with their pesky trade unions and supplementary costs. Plain and simple. When that child gets hit by the car near one of the precious and fragile school zones you hear so much about, you can take solace in the fact that your government will have a picture of the car speeding and a bill for the driver instead of flashing lights in a mirror with an ensuing traffic stop - which would have saved the child's life.
