HB1044 was intended to fix some of the gaping flaws in the state's speed camera law which have degraded the legal rights of honest, safe motorists. It would have included several provisions which might have addressed problems currently being seen:
- Stricter standards would have been imposed on the testing and certification of speed camera equipment
- Courts would have been required to consider citation images as secondary evidence of speed and consider this to be exonerating if the timestamped images did not prove speeding
- Closed the loophole allowing arrangements such as the per-ticket bounty which Baltimore City paid Xerox Corp
- Records pertaining to speed cameras would be required to be kept on file and required to be disclosed in response to a public information act request.
