From the Baltimore Sun:
"People receiving fines can challenge the tickets, but they also will be able to sign on to the city's Web site and, using their ticket number, watch the video or see the pictures of their car going by the camera."

Is this a typical service when cameras are involved, elsewhere or for red-light cameras?

They're doing the same thing on I-95 in the ICC construction zone, except they left the speed limit at 65.  The "PHOTO ENFORCED" warning seemed to be unheeded by 99.9% of traffic this morning, and I didn't notice any flash bulbs going off, so......

I noticed those signs on I-95 in the ICC zone during my recent trip, and kept my speed at 65 mph. I nearly got run over; very few were heeding the 65 mph limit. I don't remember my radar detector going off through the area so they must not have the cameras in place. I presume the speed would be measured by radar or laser.

Md. extends grace period to speeders


--- Quote ---The two mobile cameras will be rotated among work zones across the state. Large signs warning that the cameras are in use are placed in advance of the work zones. So far, they have been used in three locations: Interstate 95 between Routes 198 and 212 (the ICC work zone) in Montgomery County; Interstate 695 at Charles Street in Baltimore County; and a work zone at I-95 near White Marsh.

The pilot program has already generated at least $56k in tickets.

And they are really milking the "construction zone" for the ICC interchange. They have the photo enforcement extended all the way down to the I-95/495 interchange. Didn't see any mobile photo trucks at either I-95 construction zone today heading north or last Sunday heading south. Nobody seemed to care either judging by how fast some foks drove.
