D.C. Rolls Out New Traffic Cameras To Catch Stop Sign Violations

The District is more than doubling the number of traffic enforcement cameras across the city and expanding the kinds of infractions the cameras catch.

NBC Washington reports 132 new cameras are being added in coming months that can catch vehicles running stop signs, blocking intersections and failing to yield to pedestrians in crosswalks.

The first Stop sign camera was recently placed in Northwest D.C., one of 32 that will issue $50 tickets for rolling through Stop signs.

Police have already started using cameras to ticket oversized trucks passing through residential neighborhoods.
