DC adding dozens of enforcement cameras

Posted: Updated:
WASHINGTON -

The District of Columbia is more than doubling the number of traffic enforcement cameras across the city and expanding the kinds of infractions the cameras catch.
 
Officials say that the 132 new cameras being added in coming months include cameras that can catch vehicles running stop signs, blocking intersections and failing to yield to pedestrians in crosswalks.

D.C. currently has 43 mobile, portable and fixed speed cameras and 48 red light cameras.
 
The first stop sign camera is being tested and D.C. police say there will soon be 32 stop sign cameras.

Police have already started using cameras to ticket oversized trucks passing through residential neighborhoods.

They will also add 32 portable speed cameras, 24 intersection speed cameras, 20 gridlock cameras and 16 cameras to watch crosswalks.
