Motorists in Maryland are outraged after receiving speed camera citations many believe to be wildly inaccurate. WJLA-TV reported complaints about cameras on Indian Head Highway in Forest Heights. The for-profit company that issues the tickets accused Earl Lomax of driving his 40,000 pound RV towing an automobile at 53 MPH uphill, a speed that it could not have reached in the short space available to accelerate before the camera. The Washington Examiner similarly reported that Optotraffic has been issuing tickets to buses in Prince George’s County, including one accused of driving 78 MPH in a 35 zone on Bladensburg Road.
A TV commercial by Victoria’s Transport Accident Commission (Australia) warning drivers of the real dangers of driving while distracted – here, it includes a child distracting their mother, changing CDs and texting a message on a mobile phone. First shown on 15 May 2007.
[Ed note: Very effective commercial. Be sure to see the end.]
