Let's see state tighten its belt To the editor: In an effort to balance the budget, Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley has proposed a list of tax increases. These increases, along with staggering fuel costs, will have devastating effects on every state resident's lifestyle. Personally, I have been commuting to work from my home in Frostburg to Hagerstown for 12 years. Due to increasing fuel costs, we are moving to Martinsburg, W.Va. I do this with much regret.

The car won't be used to pick up criminals, but rather recruit potential officers at special events. Staff at Sounds So Good Car Audio, which is on a lane across from Hooverville Elementary School, had few instructions from police beyond keep the car functional, but also "make it flashy and make it showy," Ryan Bryan said.

City police stopped 40 vehicles over a 2 1/2-hour period Friday morning for violating Maryland's "move over" law, the Hagerstown Police Department said. TheĀ  law, which went into effect Oct. 1, 2010, requires a driver to change lanes into an available lane away from an emergency vehicle if the driver is approaching the emergency vehicle from the rear. The emergency vehicle must be using its visual signals and must be parked or stopped. If changing lanes is not safe or possible or is otherwise prohibited, the driver must slow down to a reasonable and prudent speed that ensures the safety of emergency services personnel.
