BALTIMORE - A recent controversy has popped up after a State Highway Administration audit and a number of investigations from local media that showed malfunctioning cameras. This caused erroneous fines being issued where no law was actually broken.
Nearly $40 million in penalties have been levied by the city since speed cameras were introduced. Legislators want to make sure that the law is being enforced fairly and accurately.
Delegate Jon Cardin has expressed interest in this issue because of the high number of citations issued to residents and the high number of schools and cameras in Baltimore County.
He has encouraged both city and state lawmakers to come together to ensure that the system is operating fairly for children's safety.
The news conference will be held at noon on Monday in front of the Baltimore City District Court on Calvert Street in Downtown Baltimore.
