Speed Cameras and Resentment LingerAuthor/Presenter: Kravitz, Derek
Cameras in work zones on D.C. 295 have generated around 15,000 speeding tickets. Drivers who frequent the road are convinced the cameras need to be removed since construction has dwindled since October. However, D.C. Department of Transportation spokesman John Lisle believes the amount of construction work still taking place warrants the need for the cameras. Drivers in the area are warned about doubled fines and photo enforecement. They are only ticketed for going 12 mph over the speed limit and when workers are present.
