article imageVideo: Man fined for speeding, but his car was completely stopped

Baltimore - Everyone is aware of those darn cameras, catching you speeding on a regular basis, but this owner was more than a little upset because his car was completely immobile at the time it was caught on camera.
Daniel Doty, the driver in Baltimore, received a $40 ticket for speeding. He was accused of going 38 mph in a 25 mph zone.
However, when reviewing the recording of the incident, it is completely obvious that the car is at an absolute standstill, and you can even see that his brake-lights are illuminated.
Apparently the case went to court, and was thrown out. Doty apparently urged the judge to view the video of the alleged violation and award him costs for the time taken to fight the ticket, but she apparently declined to do so.
"It's really outside the purview of the court," District Court Judge Melissa K. Copeland said on Thursday.
The ticket was issued in April this year and was certified by a Baltimore police officer (despite images showing the car was stationary). According to Baltimore police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi, "a perfect storm of errors" led to the ticket.
