Speedsters beware: New traffic cameras rolling in D.C.

The Metropolitan Police Department is switching on new traffic cameras this week in seven new locations to curb speeding drivers in the city and protect pedestrians.

The cameras will catch speeding drivers and those who fail to stop at stop signs, the Washington Post reported.

For the first 30 days, the cameras will log violations and the city will issue warning citations for violations in the new locations. But after the trial period is up, drivers will start getting tickets in the mail.

The new speed cameras are rolling on the 600 block of Maryland Avenue NW, the 3600 block of Park Place NW, the 2600 block of Lincoln Road NE, the 3100 block of 4th Street NE and the 4000 block of 12th Street NW.

New stop sign cameras will track cars at two locations: one at Fessenden and 44th Street NW and another on North Capitol Street NE at Chillum Place.

D.C. previously installed other speed and stop sign cameras throughout the District in May.
