Pr. George’s councilwoman ticketed for reckless driving

UPPER MARLBORO — A Prince George’s County councilwoman who was stopped for high-speed driving and veering across lanes has gotten a ticket for reckless driving.

On Feb. 22, Karen Toles got a $90 ticket for an unsafe lane change on the Capital Beltway and was given a warning for speeding. The police officer could not establish Toles’ speed because the cruiser was not equipped with radar, nor was it calibrated to measure her speed.

But on Tuesday, an executive review panel recommended the reckless driving citation. Prince George’s County Police Chief Mark McGaw hand-delivered the citation to Toles, who accepted it at her lawyer’s office.

The citation carries a $510 fine and up to six points on a driver’s license.

  1. Didn’t the original story say that she was doing more than 110 mph? Now the officer can’t say how fast she was going?
