Baltimore is creating school zones out of thin air in order to install traffic cameras to raise revenue for the cash strapped city:
The cityâ€™s plan is to take a number of roads that are within the legally required distance to a school but are in areas where children do not regularly walk. Baltimore will install â€œschool zoneâ€ signs on these roads for the sole purpose of meeting the legal requirement that the speed cameras be used only in a school zone. The new zones include Charles Street at Lake Avenue, Northern Parkway at Greenspring, Pulaski Highway at Monument Street and Roland Avenue at West Cold Spring.
I agree with this bloggers take on these zones being detrimental to public safety.

As fictitious school-zones expand, so do no-carry/gun-free-zones.
eh, it’ll just cause more accidents. i’m glad i no longer work near Northern/Greenspring…that would be a hell of a traffic snafu. there’s a few red light cameras around there that already cause a large amount of traffic fail.
and that’s in addition to just how much our drivers suck.
god i need out of this city.
I lived about a mile from the intersection of Charles & Lake. The city of Baltimore is as a rotten apple that clings to the tree into the winter; it has nowhere to go but down, and will never be anything other than corruption.
