Baltimore city’s speed cameras have been offline for some time now, so I got nostalgic when I read that Baltimore County was recently forced to void almost 1,500 speeding citations due to a snafu with its camera vendor.
I almost begin to tear up when I think of Xerox — the company that once upon a time operated our cameras — missing “a certification deadline related to camera calibration” back in February that forced the county to “immediately and proactively” take those cameras offline and trash a whole mess of tickets.
And what longing I feel listening to county residents express the distrust of the government that the faulty system and its lack of transparency has sown in them — a distrust that was once ours!
