DC adds new speed limit enforcement cameras

The District Department of Transportation announced plans to install another round of automatic cameras in seven locations around the city.

Most of the photo enforcement cameras, DDOT said in a statement, will be installed this March, with a 30-day educational phase.

During the educational phase, violators captured by these new cameras will receive warning citations in lieu of tickets for violations. Afterward, D.C. traffic officials say that it will issue notices with fines that could range from $100 to $500 based on the driver’s speed in excess of the posted limit.

The automatic cameras will be installed at the following locations:

  • 400 block of Irving St. NW (northeast bound)
  • 1300 block of 9th St. NW (southbound)
  • 1400 block of E Capitol St. NE (westbound)
  • 34th St. (northbound) at Quebec St. NW
  • 3700 block of 14th St. NE (northbound)
  • 3700 block of Wheeler Rd. SE (northbound)
  • 300 block of Oklahoma Ave NE (westbound)
