UPDATED: Speed Cameras

Governor O’Malley is claimed to have said, “The law isn’t designed to catch speeders or be a cash grab, it’s meant to get drivers to slow down.”

Then why, according to Delegate Bill Frank, is Baltimore City writing into its next fiscal year budget – revenues from such cameras?????

Update: News video from the Baltimore City Council meeting on this topic indicated that, should speed cameras be placed ‘only’ within one-half mile of schools and work zones that this would cover at least 80% of Baltimore. At least one council member found this to be unacceptable. The same argument FOR the cameras was quoted as it was heard from Gov. O’Malley (above) not that long ago.
Still, no one is being honest about the attempt at a “cash grab” from motorists to a city with budget problems. They think we don’t get it.
You DO get it, don’t you?
