A public service announcement from The Only Blog You'll Ever Need
This is like the cameras at intersections that show you running a red light, although it's a lot more vague -- basically two photos of your car and the announcement that you were going 41 mph in a 30 mph zone and you owe Montgomery County $40. Both times the "vehicle speed" was 41 mph. How likely is that?
The vehicle could have been going 41 mph or 21 mph or been at a complete stop. The photos are taken one second apart. Who knows?
I wonder why they aren't more worried about the people going 80 mph on I-95. As Rich O'Mara, a former Sun staffer, once said to a cop when he was stopped on 95 for speeding (I'm paraphrasing here), "What's wrong, officer? Were the other cars going too fast for you to catch?"
