Washington, DC

speed camera

“Dear PoPville,

This is on Park Road, the last block of Mount Pleasant adjacent to Rock Creek Park. Drivers on this minor arterial crossing Rock Creek Park to Cleveland Park tend to be in a hurry, and speed up when the road appears to be open and congestion-free. Residents complain, hence the new camera.

No, I don’t know when it will be fully operational. Best to slow down now, please! Residents would be perfectly happy if this camera never issued a speeding ticket. The purpose is to slow drivers down, not to inflict costly speeding tickets on anyone. It’s about deterrence, not punishment.
