Also, the Ward 8 council member owed $2,824 on 21 outstanding tickets, according to The Washington Times. The tickets date back to 2012.
The Washington Times says the violations, which occurred between February 2012 and July 2014, include the following:
$1,460 in eight separate fines for failure to display current tags;
$684 for five automated-enforcement speeding tickets for driving 11 to 15 mph over the speed limit;
$150 for a red-light camera fine;
$120 for three parking tickets.
After Saturday’s crash, Barry received citations for driving against traffic, expired tags and lack of insurance. The fines associated with the citations are not yet clear.
Barry may not have to pay some of the parking tickets based on D.C. Code, which allows council members and Congress to park their cars on “any available curbs space” during “official business,” according to The Washington Times. The code would exempt him from paying three of the parking tickets.
For Barry to get his car from the impound lot, D.C. police indicated to The Washington Times that he would have to pay off all his old fines. Also, the vehicle registration and tags must be up to date before a vehicle can be released from a city impound lot, according to the D.C. Department of Motor Vehicles.
On Saturday, Barry’s car collided head-on with another vehicle in the 2900 block of Pennsylvania Avenue in Southeast. Barry was treated for having low blood sugar. The other driver complained of pain in her neck and head.
