Do red light cameras violate motorist privacy?
No. Driving is a privilege, not a right granted and controlled by state and local laws. By obtaining a drivers license and operating a motor vehicle, a motorist agrees to abide by state and local laws. There is no law that suggests drivers should not be observed on the road or have their violations documented. Red light cameras in the state of Maryland are designed to photograph only a vehicles rear license plate, not the occupants. Only vehicles driven by motorists who violate the law are photographed.
