"The Metropolitan Police Department has installed five new speed cameras across the city, in areas where speed has been a problem.
During a 30-day educational period, violators will receive warning citations. After a month, speeders will get moving citations.
Here’s where the new speed cameras are located:
•700 block of Maryland Ave NW, southbound 25 mph
•2600 block of Wisconsin Ave NW, northbound 25 mph
•4400 block of Reservoir Rd NW, eastbound 25 mph
•2400 block of 18th St NE, southbound 25 mph
•3000 block of Pennsylvania Ave SE, northwestbound 30 mph"
Great to know of these new additions. I'm sure they will be added to the database promptly for downloading.
I do find it both amusing and disappointing that DC is bucking the trend by adding speed cameras instead of eliminating them. I guess they need the revenue and are willing to put up the fees for the inevitable legal challenges.
When will they learn???
to compensate for not being free to tax people to hell.
Nothing new, except the locations.
DC Has It's Ways to compensate for not being free to tax people to hell.
DC is a welfare state where more residents are receiving payments than not. Congress won't let them impose a commuter tax because most of the commuters are federal employees.
I'm rather surprised DC only put up 5!
I'm surprised there isn't a speed cam every 1/4 mile on every street, and those slippery (_insert_ derogatory_word_here_) haven't planted trees so they could hide speed limit signs, or varriable speed limits, based on day and the color of your car.
If there's a sleezy way to separate the public from what little cash they get to retain after taxation, I'm certain the fine folks in the District of Corruption are actively working on a method to implement those procedures!
" DC is a welfare state where more residents are receiving payments than not. "
That may be true but .... some of the biggest and most egregious recipients, dollar per dollar, are large industries, trade groups and corporations.
I'm just saying ....
FZBar didn't make that statement, I did. But then what does your statement have to do with the subject of the District's finances? The fact remains that more residents are receiving handouts from the government than those not receiving payments.
Let's get back on topic.
