Default Eliminate them

There is only one sure and final way to get rid of them. You get a binding referendum on the ballot to amend the city laws to require that speeding must be committed in the physical presence of a police officer, just like trespassing. It may take over a year to get it on the ballot and some organization on the part of the people of DC, but until you do, you'll have to live with the cameras.

Court: Md. drivers can't get speed camera fines back

Has no one heard of a petition? Laws can be repealed. The people have to speak up and let the legislature know that they don't want speed cameras anymore. Virginia seems to be successful at it. We need the people from the 60s. They protested everything.

Lord, I wish. The people of this county are so busy trying to make themselves feel "safe" that they don't care what laws the county passes. They're as pathetic as the British.

If the anti-Highway Clowns of the 60's put a roadblock againstbuilding a 12 Lane I-270 and I-95 from Montgomery/PG County into Downtown DC then there should be enough people to Force a Petition to BAN Speeding Cameras(and Now Stop Sign Cameras) in Montgomery/PG County.........

But then again the Salvages that Blocked I-270/95 from Maryland to DC were not from the State of Maryland............

I actually don't know what the majority of the citizens of this county want or would stand behind as far as bills, petitions or the like. We don't have the smartest politicians representing us on the state or federal level - look around and that is evident. Most people are wiped out after a 1-2 hr commute to/from work and don't care once they get home. How could anyone get enough people to sign a petition to move forward with actions to remove "robotic" policing from the county.
Take into account it is a huge source of revenue for the county and you are fighting an uphill battle.
