D.C. Traffic Camera Revenue More Than Doubled in 2012

View Comments ()



    New figures show D.C. traffic cameras increasingly are paying off for the city.

    The city brought in more than twice as much money in 2012 as the year before – from about $43 million to more than $95 million.

    So far in 2013, the cameras have helped bring in more than $2 million.

    The District launched its program to catch speeders and red light runners with cameras in 2001. More traffic cameras are scheduled to go up in the coming months.
