Speed limit sign warns drivers to run the vehicle within limits. But sometimes drivers exceed the speed limit while driving the vehicle and they get a ticket from a speed-zone camera. At that time drivers have nothing to do except paying fine. What if you hear a car is stopped at traffic signal but a speed camera shows the car is moving at over-speed in a speed limit zone and the driver has to pay fine? Unfortunately the news is true. Read the details of this pretty interesting news below.
Daniel Doty, a Maryland driver in Baltimore was driving a Mazda wagon on April 24. At a traffic signal (due to red light), he stopped his car. But a speed camera in Baltimore gave a ticket to that stationary car raising the issue that the car was driven 38 mph in a 25 mph zone and hence he had to pay a fine of $40. But the most interesting news is that pictures and video footage from a speed camera showed that the car was totally motionless. The pictures also showed that the car was totally motionless at an intersection and the car’s brake lights were illuminating. A three-second video footage provided the same evidence. See the video.
Doty was astonished when he saw that a ticket had been issued with $40 fine. On the other side, city officials did not offer any explanation for Doty’s ticket. However, rather than paying the $40 fine, Doty challenged the ticket. He appeared in court on Friday to present his case.
