Southeast DC gets 2 new speed camera locations

WASHINGTON — Drivers with lead feet beware: D.C. police have deployed new automated speed enforcement locations in Southeast — both on the same street, authorities said in a news release Monday.

The Photo Enforcement Units are both in the 4300 block of Livingston Road Southeast — one unit for northbound and one for southbound.

Officials have identified the area as one where speeding and pedestrian safety is a problem. They’ll be monitoring for anyone going faster than 25 mph.

Monday starts a 30-day warning period, during which those who put the pedal to the metal will get warning citations.

After those 30 days are up, D.C. police will start handing out moving citations.

“Photo radar is a proven tool in slowing people down and reducing collisions,” D.C. police say on their website. “Here in D.C., speeding has been reduced dramatically in the enforcement zones where photo radar is operating.”
