I got a speeding ticket in the mail compliments of Washington D.C.’s traffic cameras. $125 for going 10 miles over the speed limit. Seriously? Seriously!?! One more time with feeling: SERIOUSLY??? I think the expression “highway robbery” is applicable here.
Apparently, the traffic cameras in D.C. are populating like the plague, including 27 new cameras in the past month. Where are they? Everywhere! You can buy a GPS that beeps as you approach a camera, or if you’re cheap (and you live in the D.C. area), you can check out this handy interactive map.
