Despite promising to “[take] over the existing system, with no downtime,” the city’s new speed camera operators, Brekford Corp. of Hanover, do not yet have the software in place to run the 83 cameras around Baltimore. Consequently, according to the Baltimore Sun, no speed camera tickets have yet been issued in 2013. 

The city is missing out on something like $90,000 in citation revenue every weekday that the cameras are off. But I’m sure the city doesn’t care because this was never about making money, right?

Continue to drive safe, Baltimore. But with the added comfort that comes from knowing that — for the time being — you won’t be receiving a dubious $40 citation that you end up paying just so you don’t have to deal with the hassle of trying to fight it.
