    Well, that takes away some of the credibility of speeding tickets.

        Apparently the Maryland cameras (not just this one) have at least two prior incidents of doing this sort of thing that they know of. And remember, a sworn officer supposedly signed off on each of these tickets as having seen the footage and agreed that the ticket was valid.

              Over in the random thoughts thread I posted an article about a Maryland politician who wants the contractors to pay high fines for just this sort of stupidity.

                If you go to court for any driving offense and are found not guilty, the state should have to pay YOU. How is it fair that if I lose, i have to pay the state, but if I win, I get to just pay no fine and am out the time I should be at work. No accountability leads to rampant ticket abuse.

                  "Innocent until proven guilty" apparently doesn't apply to traffic offenses.

                    A similar thing happened to a friend of mine with a red light camera. There were pics of his car stopped at the light (same position in both pics and brakes lights on) and video of him sitting stopped at the light. The video did show another car roll through the light in the right turn lane though. Took him a couple of months to get that tickets sorted out;.

                      In the case I would sue for a program wide injuntions stoping all tickets produced with equimpent by that company nationwide until they can prove what went wrong and that it has been fixed, rereview of all tickets given by the officer in question, and the police officer in question in jail for purgery.

                          Der Stig was up here this past weekend and he got to see the neighborhood red light camera that cheerfully photographs an empty intersection whilst blinding oncoming traffic in action. I wonder which of the cars sitting at the light got the ticket.
