ABC News 7 has revealed the 5 camera sites in Montgomery County grossing more revenue than any others in the county's program. 77,668 citations were reportedly issued by these 5 cameras, bringing in a total of $3.1million in revenue for a 12 month period ending in August. The county's contractor, ACS State and Local Solution, received a $16.25 cut out of each citation, or $1,262,105 from these 5 cameras sites alone.
according to the county's own report, as of June 2009 80% of camera sites located in Montgomery County were not located in designated school zones.
A similar situation applies to the camera at 13600 Darnestown Road, where a 40mph speed limit is dropped to 30mph and the camera placed 0.1mile down the road, and no posted school zone, a fact which we reported on shortly after that camera was installed.
