Slow your roll: DC installing 19 more traffic cameras around city

There are 17 traffic cameras being set up in new locations in D.C. over the next three months, and the District Department of Transportation is warning residents that they have a month to get used to the new locations before the tickets start rolling out.

There will be 15 speed cameras and two stop sign cameras going in across the District. DDOT said there will be a 30-day “educational phase,” when those caught violating traffic laws by the cameras will receive warnings. After that, fines will be issued ranging from $100 to $500, depending on the amount over the posted speed limit the vehicle is traveling.

At least seven of the traffic cameras are scheduled to be installed on Wednesday.

  • 1700 block North Capitol Street NE (Speed), Dec. 15
