Gotcha in DC: 26 MPH in a 25 MPH zone … snap, busted!

On balance, I’m ok with speed cams as long as their tolerances are reasonable … say 7 MPH over the speed limit.

According to WTOP, DC is implementing zero tolerance on more than a dozen speed cams being installed around the District.

Here’s the rub.

They primarily target areas with posted speed limits of 25 mph.

If you’re snapped driving 1 mph to 10 mph above the limit, there’s  a $50 fine.

Doing 11 mph to 15 mph over results in a $100 ticket.

The price increases in 5 mph increments, up to $300 for driving in excess of 26 mph above the posted limit.

As a public service, here’s a partial map of the cam locations.
