Real problem with speed cameras: Reckless drivers

Yes, let's fine-tune the speed cameras ("Restoring trust in speed cameras," Dec. 10). But also, let's be honest: What underlies much of the fussing over speed cameras is that many drivers just do not want to obey the law. They apparently feel that speed limits are voluntary.

Sorry, they are not. Our roads and highways are filled with reckless drivers who put themselves and the rest of us in danger. Thank goodness the speed cameras serve as a deterrent to some; to others, let them pay the fines! Baltimore can use the money.
