Right now speed cameras are used in 14 states plus DC*, leaving 36 states where they are not used at all. States which do NOT use speed cameras are:
|Indiana||New Jersey||West Virginia|
Two other states (Alabama and New York) permit speed cameras in only one city. Most other states use them in only a very limited number of cities and towns, and only in specific areas. In fact among the municipalities and counties which use speed cameras in the US, over 30% of them are located in Maryland, despite the fact that Maryland has less than 2% of the nation's population.
So the situation we have in Maryland, where the state endorses the paranoid position that people can only be "safe" if drivers are monitored at all times by a system of for-profit automated enforcement devices -- a system with no real due process and an extremely reduced burden of proof against the accused -- is in fact not "normal" at all. Nationwide, it is the exception.
