Warning period for DC cameras has been extended

Posted: Updated:
WASHINGTON, DC - The warning period for new set of cameras in the District of Columbia has been extended. 

The Metropolitan Police Department was scheduled to start ticketing drivers Monday for speeding and infractions at stop signs, crosswalks and intersections, but spokeswoman Gwendolyn Crump tells Fox 5, "Warning tickets will continue to be issued until every location has 30 days of tickets. We are working to ensure that all possible warning tickets are mailed prior to issuing live tickets."

No word exactly when the fines will begin.

The system includes 132 cameras, purchased directly by the city.   Some are being used for "gridlock enforcement" and ticket  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.
