D.C.’s speed camera locations get a little more numerous as of Tuesday. The District is rolling out 14 new units, as well as a truck camera, to contribute to its heavily automated revenue generator (which has recently seen a drop in fines). There’s good news, though, if you get caught in the next few weeks along Massachusetts Avenue or Martin Luther King Avenue: The cameras will have a grace period.
During the new speed cameras’ first 30 days of operation, identified offenders will not receive tickets and fines, WTOP reports. Instead, they will get warnings in the mail.
Of course, after that 30-day window, the cameras will join the ranks of the city’s other units, taking photos and forwarding info on to a system that will assign tickets ranging from $50 to $300.
The best way to ensure that you don’t get one of those tickets is to obey the designated speed limits. You may also want to familiarize yourself with the D.C. Metropolitan Police Department’s list of speed camera locations and this map of its cameras and uses.
