As more and more traffic cameras are being found to be less than accurate ("2 city speed cameras faulted," Dec. 7), Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake needs to do something she has not done since being elected — step up and show some leadership for a change.
The mayor should shut down the cameras until it can be proven that they are working correctly. It seems that when things go wrong or when her administration is questioned about anything, she simply stonewalls or obfuscates or creates a blue-ribbon panel to fact find, or says this is the way things have always been done in the past.
It's time to accept ownership of this problem, suspend operations until things are made right. After that, make the supplier responsible. Also, the contractor should not be paid for any ticket that is thrown out in court. That alone should keep everyone relatively honest.
