grinding_journalist: I should invent a costumed crusader called the "Sentry Smasher" where I travel to small towns and townships, smash all the red light cameras in one night, and disappear.
Random Anonymous Blackmail: How much longer before the GPS chip is tapped into on your vehicle and you are just mailed a speeding ticket?
curtis_e_bare: Just to get this straight, no one appears upset that running a red light but turning right while doing so or stopping on the far side of the stop line are traffic infractions, but they are upset because it is now being enforced?Gotcha.
Dubya's_Coke_Dealer: If you nitwits would STOP at red lights, you wouldn't have a problem.
jmr61: I have no problems with this. As a pedestrian I've had to walk around MANY cars that were way too far into the intersection and when I look at them they either are playing on their phone or feign not understanding what the problem is. Or they are that stupid. FARK THEM.As to rolling stops and turns, FARKING STOP. It takes two seconds.Been driving almost 40 years with one speeding ticket when I was about 20./And get off my lawn.
tallen702: curtis_e_bare: Just to get this straight, no one appears upset that running a red light but turning right while doing so or stopping on the far side of the stop line are traffic infractions, but they are upset because it is now being enforced?Gotcha.Right turn on red isn't a crime unless otherwise posted in MD, but Rockville will ticket you for it anyway.
Endive Wombat: I fail to understand why they do not increase yellow light times and put in a visible yellow timer. I have no idea if this will increase safety, but I like to think it would.
wildcardjack: Umm....Is there a law forcing me to receive mail from the USPS? If I don't accept mail then how can I be fined by mail?
KatjaMouse: I commute through this sliver of an area where Rockville and Bethesda intersect and had gotten flashed 3 times at an intersection while my light was green. I've luckily been able to get the tickets dismissed. I've also noticed a driver in front of me, with a green signal, get flashed as well a number of times. So, does Maryland ever disable this camera or fix it? Nope. They started actually having a cop park at the corner of that street and I think he just notates when the camera flashes errantly and reports back.
JohnnyBravo: I hate this state. That is all. If I could leave I would.
Naesen: White / white with flecked paintballs + buddy in the car + paintball gun + driving below speed limit past known cameras = officials having to come out every week to clean of what appears to be bird turboshiatting on the lens.Good times.
Lady Beryl Ersatz-Wendigo: If they ever start using these cameras to ticket jaywalkers then I'm totally screwed.
