Several weeks ago, there was quite a bit of local Howard County media coverage involving the County Council's approval of speed cameras for school safety zones. Being an advocate of safe driving practices, I feel that utilizing speed cameras to slow down automobiles in schools zones is a great idea. In fact, I am trying to understand why we don’t have speed cameras all over the county. Don’t we all what to be safe? We have rules but we seem quite content to let them be broken. Speeding is a problem all over the county not just in the school zones. In fact, I think speeding is less of a problem in the school zones. It is rare that I see people speeding through school zones, but on the rest of the roads it is a common practice.
