Attorney General Douglas F. Gansler has paid an overdue speeding ticket issued by a District of Columbia speed camera after repeated delays drove the cost to $400, according to multiple media reports.
Gansler issued a statement Tuesday saying he had paid the ticket himself even though he says the identity of who was driving his state-issued vehicle at the time of the violation has not been determined.
The ticket was issued in June 2012 for going 21 to 25 mph over the speed limit, WBAL reported. The initial fine compounded to $400 with penalties for 16 months of delay.
The citation was one part of a controversy reported first by the Washington Post over what Maryland State Police troopers that the attorney general frequently issued orders to speed or otherwise drive unsafely. Gansler has denied those reports.
