It should probably be assumed that they are on every corner but this release came out late last week:

The Metropolitan Police Department (MPD) announced today the deployment of three new photo enforced Red Light Cameras locations beginning Monday, October 11, 2010.

Red Light cameras deployed throughout the city act as a force multiplier to allow MPD to monitor and enforce traffic safety compliance.

In selecting locations for the Red Light Cameras, MPD considers calls for police service, crash data, speed feasibility studies, as well as recommendations or requests from the Department of Transportation, Advisory Neighborhood Commissions and civic or citizen associations.

The thirty day educational phase will commence on October 11, 2010 where as violators will receive warning citations. On November 12, 2010, MPD will begin issuing live citations to violating motorists.

The new red light camera locations are as follows:

1. Connecticut Avenue southbound at Porter Street NW

2. 14th Street northbound at K Street NW

3. 3rd Street southbound at New York Ave NW
