Baltimore City To Drop Speed Camera Bounty System

Updated: Wednesday, December 18 2013, 04:38 PM EST

Baltimore City officials say they will no longer share speed camera revenue with private contractors, discarding the controversial "bounty system."

The change in strategy was revealed as the city severed ties with its current speed camera company Brekford. On Wednesday morning the Board of Estimates approved a $600,000 payment to Brekford to terminate a contract that was plagued with delays.

The city's speed camera system was shut down this summer after the cameras continued to issue erroneous tickets.  The mayor said the decision to end the bounty system was made based upon a report of the city's Speed Camera Task Force.
