ROCKVILLE, Md. — A Maryland man who received a $75 red-light camera ticket in Rockville believes the city targets drivers to raise revenue, not for safety.

Mike Ficco received a ticket on Feb. 18, 2014 at 9:09 am at West Gude Drive at Gaither Road in Rockville. The video shows Ficco completely stopped before making a right turn on red, but his full stop occurred after the stop line.
