Maryland's third-worst rating is an honor
The Free State can take pride in its ranking as the third-worst state in the nation in terms of its traffic laws and enforcement by the National Motorists Association.
Why? Because the NMA is a fringe group that opposes just about any sensible highway safety measure ever enacted into law. The organization is fervently dedicated to speeders' rights and does all it can to discredit legitimate law enforcement.
This is a little bit like being ranked near the worst in health laws by the nation's tobacco companies.
