Did a Baltimore speed camera rip me off?
I am a person that seldom drives more than five miles per hour over the posted speed limit, whether it be on an interstate highway or a city street. In my 60-plus years of driving, I have received three speeding citations, averaging one every 20 years. This past May, I was mailed a speed camera ticket from Baltimore City for exceeding by more than 12 miles per hour the 25 mph speed limit on Gwynns Falls Parkway. I found this a little hard to believe. However, after recovering from the shock, I dutifully and promptly paid the $40 fine while also feeling that I had lost my virginity.
