As of this week (June 1, 2016), the Baltimore administration and the City Council continue to discuss the past problems and steps to correct the city's Red-Light and Speed Camera's (which were to be used mainly in areas of School zones).
On Monday, June 1, the Baltimore City Council released a sharply critical assessment of Baltimore's once-lucrative speed camera system, faulting the program's enormous size and lack of oversight. The program was run first by Xerox State & Local Solutions and then later by Brekford Corp.
A leaked audit of the Xerox system later showed the errors were even more widespread than the city had disclosed, with some cameras having error rates of more than 10%. Tests of Brekford's system also disclosed widespread problems.
The city was counting on collecting $11.4 million from speed cameras alone in 2013; $7.5 million in 2014 and $6.9 million in 2015, according to projections before the cameras were shut down.
The current administration has budgeted $2.5 million in revenue from speed cameras in its new budget that begins July 1. The administration does not expect a camera system to be running again until after Jan. 1, 2016.
