There was a post on this a couple weeks ago. Lots of people are having your problem. Expect a lot of unsympathetic comments along the lines of, “You did the crime, do the time.” True, you did break the law, but these fines are out of control.
I think it’s worthwhile to contact your councilperson. David Catania was on the Kojo Show last week, talking about tickets. He indicated that the high price of the tickets was about money, not safety, saying that the fines would be reduced when the District shores up its finances. Jim Graham was mentioned, too — Graham thinks that this is disproportionately affecting low income residents in places like Ward 8.
If the camera is less than 30 days old, you shouldn’t have to pay any of the tickets:
Best of luck! If you’re successful in reducing the fines, I’d love to hear an update.
