City errs with speed camera mistakes
In Baltimore, speed camera citation errors have been treated differently. In one case, 3,145 citations were declared void because the wrong address block of Wabash Avenue appeared on the citation. According to news reports, the city refunded to the owners of the photographed motor vehicles the amounts paid as fines or waived enforcing those citations. In another case, some 8,400 citations contained photographic images of the subject motor vehicles on Kelley Avenue, which runs eastbound and westbound. Errors in the citations resulted because written directions were inserted as northbound or southbound. According to at least one news report, the city refuses to refund amounts paid and said that owners could contest the citations in court.
