When you live so close to state lines, like Tri-State-area residents do, it's not uncommon to be driving in a state other than the one in which you make your home. Some drivers probably think nothing of it, but states and Washington, D.C., have traffic laws with their own idiosyncrasies, and it's better to know what they are than to plead ignorance. Ignorance of the law is not a defense for disobeying the law, said Sgt. Arthur Betts, public information officer for Maryland State Police's headquarters in Pikesville, Md. Some states post signs at the state line noting its traffic laws, but it's the driver's responsibility to know the traffic laws for the state he or she is driving through, Betts said.

"Why don't the County Commissioners take the money for the stadium and give it to the Board of Education to pay our teachers?" "Regarding the speeders in Tuesday's paper, Woodpoint Avenue and Key Avenue were mentioned.

Editor's note - Please be as brief as possible when calling Mail Call, The Daily Mail's reader call-in line. Mail Call is not staffed on weekends or holidays so it is best to call Mail Call during the week. The Mail Call number is 301-791-6236 . You are welcome to leave a recorded message on any subject, but some calls will be screened out. Here are some of the calls we have received lately: "The Maryland law states that you have to have your headlights on when you have your windshield wipers on. This is very important when it's raining because it's a safety issue and I see a lot of people driving in the rain with their windshield wipers on but their headlights are off. People should also check to see if they have a headlight or taillight out because this too can cause a problem.
