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.

It’s been five days and tens of thousands are still in the dark. Governor Martin O’Malley warns this could be the most dangerous day in the aftermath of the storm.
