Why are speed camera citations in D.C. so high?
 

 
Listen, I love my city. But these two $150.00 camera citations I got in the mail are NOT the business. And why does the sh*t double if I don't pay within a month? So if I say fu*k it (or inadvertently forget about them), that is $600.00...for a fu*king CAMERA citation. What the fu*k?

D.C. - I love you but please GET IT TOGETHER. And it's even more retarded that just across the line - P.G. County's citations are only $40.00.

I know people been complaining about this but has there ever been any type of justification for this high a*s sh*t?

Well, they put in a high penalty if you don't pay in a month so you will pay in a month.
If the penalty were $1, it would be laughable. If the penalty were double, then it would possibly make you pay in a month.

DC gotta make money anyway they can. One of the last times I was out there I was trying to take photos with my family by the Monument. Pulled up next to a tourist bus and hopped out. Cop immediately jumps on me a gave me a ticket no questions asked. I'm like "Bro I'm just gonna get back in my car" he wasn't having it. I go to tear up the ticket and he put his hand on his gun. I'm like oh he one of these one's.

So I just drove my happy azz to my aunt's and never paid that shxt. It don't show up on my L's so I don't care.

Before COVID and we were commuting, this is precisely why I stayed on WMATA. It's a riot but man, I could never drive throughout the city like that.

You musta been on the ratchet a*s green line. Man, listen.

I'd take a train car that smells like straight up weed, piss, and some other abnormalities than to be getting these wack a*s citations in the mail.

I'm really sitting here about to pay $150.00. TWICE. I'm hot.

I think it was. The cop wasn't even from the area neither. I'm pretty sure he was from NYC.

It’s come to my attention that people don’t realize DC is it’s own entity in the US.

Kinda like the Federal Reserve it’s not part of the main US states and operates under its own law.

I was JUST talking about the ghetto a*s green line on Friday.

I can't figure it out with that damn line. I don't know if it's cuz it goes deep through Southeast but that sh*t can't get itself right, either.

But I'd deal with that ghetto a*s sh*t instead of these damn citations lol

LMAO. I think that's the same fu*kin camera that got me.

ETA: Yep. Paper says 1400 block on Kenilworth. I don't even know where that fu*kin camera is. Apparently it's right before you hop on 295.

Parking tickets are $100 in DC too. If you aren't going to dispute them pay em off so you don't fu*k up your credit, get your sh*t booted/towed or get your license snatch.

Keep an eye on your credit report because they will go to collections.
