I can see your frustration with so many tickets and I know so many people do not go 35 (esp. in some areas) on 16th. If there is such thing as a 30 day notice, that is worth the fight or perhaps your odomoter is not working properly and you need to take it in for adjusting. I too just got one of those “speed trap” camera tickets on NY & 6th going 47 in a 35, of course I didn’t need to go that slow because there was not one vehicle in any of the tickets being it was a Saturday morning. I don’t remember the speed changing at that area or maybe there is usually so much traffic no one can speed. My argument is that it is a bit excessive ($125). How is the dollar amount determined on these tickets? I have only received 2 others – one for a school zone and another in a construction area — of course there was no construction at the time and they were $40 each. I do think $125 is a bit excessive and more like a speed trap as I read DC had a gross income of $56 million last year from camera tickets. I’m not sure how many accidents used to occur at 6th & NY before they reduced the 35mph. I suppose I would not mind if all this revenue went towards education–because for the parking tickets that I have tried to fight through mail adjudication, I noticed that apparently no one actually READS those ;-0. OR have the revenue towards our jail system to keep prisoners IN jail or incarcurate those that should not be walking the street. Anyone know how to obtain the logs that are suppose to be checked on a daily basis to find out whether or not they have been checked?
