The Baltimore City speed camera ticket alleged that the four-door Mazda wagon was going 38 miles per hour in a 25-mph zone — and that owner Daniel Doty owed $40 for the infraction. But the Mazda wasn't speeding. It wasn't even moving. The two photos printed on the citation as evidence of speeding show the car was idling at a red light with its brake lights illuminated. A three-second video clip also offered as evidence shows the car motionless, as traffic flows by on a cross street. The camera that wrongly ticketed Doty on April 24 is in Northeast Baltimore in the 1700 block of E. Cold Spring Lane, at the intersection with Hillen Road. It is the seventh city speed camera that The Baltimore Sun has shown to have produced inaccurate citations bearing erroneous speed readings.
Traffic cameras need to be outlawed and all fines ever paid need to be refunded. All points and infractions removed.
Nope, just once at a red light camera where I had to go in order to avoid being rear-ended. The camera did not show that though. My saving grace was that a cop actually saw the incident and pulled over the other driver. I was able to subpoena him and get his testimony which resulted in me not having to pay the ticket. Had a cop not been there, I would have been unjustly accused and unable to plead my case. The right to confront your accuser is part of the bedrock of our legal system and needs to be retained.
