While there are some who will use this latest fiasco to call for a repeal of automated speed enforcement altogether, AAA Mid-Atlantic does not share that view. We continue to believe that when utilized properly, automated speed enforcement can be a valuable tool that saves lives and changes driving behaviors. We have seen success with the State Highway Administration's (SHA) use of speed cameras in work zones. SHA's signage is clearly visible and gives motorists ample notice that cameras may be present. Data show that since the implementation of its program in Maryland's highway work zones, the number of citations issued has dropped by more than 80 percent, suggesting that motorists are changing their behavior and slowing down, resulting in safer conditions for all.
