Yesterday a lady blew a red light turning left, in her Honda Fit.

A person driving a Saturn VUE took exception--he sped up and made her slam on her brakes, and waved his fist out the window.

That was not the end of it. At the next stoplight, he got out, and began screaming at her. Wisely, she did not put her window down, as imho the person looked as though he might have taken heroin.

Five new speed enforcement cameras in DC go online Monday.

From: http://wtop.com/dc/2015/05/where-to-look-out-for-new-speed-e...

"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.

Well maybe NYC can finally put those RLC to good use

Six New Speed Cameras in DC

From: http://wtop.com/sprawl-crawl/2015/04/six-new-speed-cameras-g...

"WASHINGTON — Six new speed cameras placed in areas known for speeding go online Wednesday across the District of Columbia.

The new cameras will be at these locations:
• 6100 Eastern Avenue NE, southeastbound: 25 mph
• 3200 Fort Lincoln Drive NE, southbound: 25 mph

a situation where it makes total sense

I encounter this activity daily--cars that do an illegal right on red, where vehicles turning left have a green arrow.

If it were a one-on-one accident, he said she said, the left turning vehicle is going to pay for the damage based on the right turning vehicle's lying.

A rlc to prevent the illegal turn itself, and video the turn if it takes place, imho would cure the problem.
