DC traffic cameras set to start issuing tickets tomorrow
A new set of cameras in the District of Columbia will start ticketing drivers tomorrow for speeding and infractions at stop signs, crosswalks and intersections.
District of Columbia police activated the cameras in late November, and so far they've been issuing warnings to drivers. Starting tomorrow, however, the cameras will begin issuing tickets.
The system includes cameras for "gridlock enforcement" that will ticket vehicles for "blocking the box" at intersections. There are also portable stop sign enforcement cameras to ticket drivers for not stopping in residential neighborhoods.
Police say the speed cameras are being placed at intersections with known speeding problems.
Police say they are combating aggressive and dangerous driving habits that endanger pedestrians, bicyclists and drivers.
