DC is defending 295 speed camera that reportedly issues $800 tickets

The District of Columbia is notorious for its use of speed cameras. On any given day, about 120 are operating in just 68 square miles.

But one camera, on DC’s I-295, rakes in more cash than any other, often ticketing motorists for work zone violations, when there’s no visible work.

Lucinda Babers is the Deputy Mayor who oversees the agencies that run the program.
