Hilton, When was the fatal accident you mentioned at Rolling and Newberg? What about the lazy drivers who insist in making an illegal left from McCurley onto Newberg through the traffic circle? What about the drivers on Hiulton who drive on the wrong side of the traffic island on Hilton near McCurley?

Remember it's a fee not a TAX. Just another way of O"Malley taking our money.

Now they refer to such a "cost" as a "penalty fee tax". See States v ObamaCare.

DC Police Chief Lanier once called for the banning of the GPS based warning system that some entrepreneur dreamed up a while back. You could download onto your GPS the latest locations of speed cams. You could upload locations to the site if you found one. She was adamant that that was not to stand. Why? Because it, I will paraphrase, 'it slowed people down only where the cams were'. Libtranslation? 'It affected revenue.'

Its not a fee or a tax, its a fine. A fine for breaking the law, and totally avoidable. Think of it as your own personal tax cut for not speeding.
