Heads Up: New Speed Camera Locations


From MPD:

“The Metropolitan Police Department announced today the deployment of new photo enforced locations beginning on or about May 4, 2015. The deployment locations for the Photo Enforcement Units will be sites where speeding has been identified to be a problem.

The 30 day educational phase, or “warning period”, will commence on or about May 4, 2015. During this period, violators will receive warning citations. After the 30 day warning period, MPD will begin issuing live moving citations to violators. The new photo enforcement locations are (above).”

    The Reservoir road one has been there for a solid month already. Guess it’s been laying dormant until now though!

  • To those who don’t like speed cameras: Don’t break the law, and you won’t get a ticket.

    We need a lot more of these things.

  • Accountering

    To lawbreakers: Slow down, or kick in some cash to the DC treasury
    To MPD: There should be no warning period. The warning period is the speed limit sign that presumably the MD commutter has been ignoring for the last 7 years.
    To MPD: Please figure out how to change the batteries on these things.
    To MD drivers: Thanks for finally paying some of your share to maintain DC roads and services.

  • There’s a camera on T St. NW at 15th or 16th. You do NOT want to be a pedestrian next to it at night when it flashes!

    • I’ve often wondered how the situation would play out if someone just hid in the bushes near an intersection with a bright camera flash, and triggered it whenever someone rolled a stop/red. probably a terrible idea

  • They do need to slow down traffic at 7th and Maryland, especially with the library there (a lot of kids cross there to use it).

  • Good, I love speed cameras and I hope the Council adds more!

  • Speed cameras might cause you to slow down the NEXT time you drive through an area, but why not just a speed hump if you’re actually trying to slow traffic down
