Prince George's to Install More Red Light Cameras

County police hope to have 72 up and running by the end of 2014.

Prince George's County police are planning to install dozens of additional red light cameras in 2013, WTOP reports.

Police will replace 25 existing cameras first before bringing the total up to 72 by the end of 2014, according to the station.

Department analysts will look at traffic data to determine where to place the new equipment.

Though many drivers have complained about speed cameras, Maj. Robert V. Liberati told WTOP that public reaction to red light cameras has been more positive.

The county installed 72 new speed cameras in 2012, according to the station. Tickets from red-light cameras are $75, while those from speed cameras are $40.

Left out of this story is the fact that they also want to put in stationary tag readers. There are some mobile units already in use in the county, which I do not have any real objection to, however the staionary unmanned tag readers seems a little big brotherish to me.

I understand the need to raise money to take care of the budget issues in the state and this is a good way of taking care of 2 birds with 1 stone, raise money and help save lives, but I would really like to see the State start changing the system about car insurance, Maryland is the worst state in the country with uninsured motorists, adopt the policy like Arizona, Texas, California, if you do not show proof of car insurance when a police officers asks, your car is impounded right then and there.
