First Maryland Protest Draws Public Support

Protest banner (click to enlarge) held its first protest in Chevy Chase, Maryland today. The event drew the interest of the NBC 4 television news which sent over a crew to film the event and interview participants. Those interviews were constantly interrupted by horns honking in agreement with signs that read “No Speed Cameras,” “Greed Cameras” and “Save Liberty, Stop the Scam.”

The goal was to raise awareness in the area and to show that we’re serious about exposing the lies. Contact us if you want to join in our next protest. Even if you can’t make it, the most important thing you can do is spread the word about the site.

Lawmakers really need to take note of the intense public sentiment — as demonstrated by the loud and constant honks — and realize that the cameras must come down.

  3. One of the drivers who stopped to support us asked a good question about who owns Connecticut Avenue and why the revenue was going to Chevy Chase and not the rest of the county. Connecticut Avenue is officially designated a “State Highway”, meaning it is maintained by the Maryland State Highway Administration with funds coming from ALL Maryland taxpayers. All of the revenue from the CCV cameras is currently going to the Chevy Chase Village government, not to the benefit of residents in the rest of the county or state.

    There are 2000 residents in Chevy Chase Village, and the median income is the median household income is in excess of $200,000, compared with $87,624 for the County and $68,080 for the state (from Wikipedia).
