Stretching the Zone

The speed cam van parked along Doncaster Road in Ellicott City seemed out of place. These vans were sold to the council as a deterrent to speeding in school zones yet there are no schools on Doncaster. Where this van was sitting, there aren't even sidewalks, on either side of the road.
There is a school within a half mile of where the vans location so I am assuming that this was the justification for the its placement. Still, this seems to be stretching the intent of the enabling legislation.  I wonder if there are any other locations in HoCo where the speed cam vans are taking liberty with school zones.
