Dear PoPville – HELP!! I don’t understand the confusing automated traffic enforcement

“Dear PoPville,

Please ask the ether to help me understand the new automated enforcement of the traffic laws.

Specifically, what will cause me to receive a ticket for pedestrian in the roadway and blocking the box? If a pedestrian is in the crosswalk on the other side of a four lane road and I cross when their foot steps onto the roadway, will I get a ticket? If the back of my car is in the intersection at the second the light turns red, will I get a ticket?

The silly ad campaign the District is running only informs you that they are ticketing for these offenses but doesn’t say what constitutes an offense. It seems almost as though the DC gov is trying to be vague so as to increase ticket revenue. “NEVER!” They’ll say.
