Slow down! D.C. installed nine new speed cameras around the District last week. 

D.C. drivers beware: the District has installed nine new speed cameras throughout the city, and they'll start issuing tickets and fines in about a month. 

The Metropolitan Police Department installed the new cameras at sites "with the highest number of crashes and injuries, calls for police service, and high speed volume," according to a statement from MPD. 

The cameras went into operation Nov. 21, and the department will begin issuing citations for moving violations to those caught speeding Dec. 21. The cameras are spread throughout the city's four quadrants, although Northwest has received the brunt of the new cameras this time around. 

Full list of camera locations:  

  • 1900 block of Foxhall Road NW, north- and south-bound directions, 25 mph
  • 2800 block of Calvert Street NW, east-bound, 25 mph
  • 2300 block of Connecticut Avenue NW, south-bound, 25 mph
  • 100 block of Florida Avenue NW, east- and west-bound, 25 mph
  • 4200 block of South Capitol SW, south-bound, 25 mph
  • 2300 block of Porter Street NW, east- and west-bound, 30 mph
  • Canal Road NW .3 miles south of Arizona Avenue NW, north- and south-bound directions, 35 mph
  • DC295 NE at Benning Road overpass, north-bound, 45 mph
  • DC295 SW .7 miles south of Exit 1, north- and south-bound, 50 mph
