Thousands of Baltimore drivers won’t have to pay red light or speed camera citations after the city announces it’s voiding 6,000 tickets.
The District of Columbia is on pace to issue more than 700,000 speed camera tickets this year, matching the record set in 2012.
Metro employees have amounted more than $250,000 in traffic fines and fees over the past three years, mostly from speeding and running red lights.
New legislation in the D.C. Council would reduce fines from automated speed cameras and running red lights could be lowered to $50.
Red light cameras were sold to the public as a way to reduce serious accidents, but some saw it as a new revenue stream for strapped cities. Now the first nationwide study includes Baltimore.
