Washington, D.C. has reached a new monetary high!!
The city issued more than a million Speed Camera Tickets to Residents and Non Residents with a net profit of $104 Million Dollars
AAA’s John Townsend: “The number of people getting tickets in the city is exploding. It has increased four-fold since 2007.”
AAA’s John Townsend: “They’re coming out with new speed cameras that are mounted on poles and near the tree line … so, we expect the number of tickets to increase.”
The D.C. Council’s transportation committee is expected to weigh a new proposal from the District Department of Transportation aimed at boosting public safety by raising the highest speed camera tickets from $300 to $500 for speeding 25 mph in excess of the posted limit on residential streets and to $400 for exceeding by 25 mph the posted speed limit on highways.
