WASHINGTON (AP) - District of Columbia police are starting to issue tickets to drivers caught by five new speed cameras in the city.

Ticketing from the five locations was scheduled to begin early Wednesday after a 30-day warning period.

The speed limit at four of the locations is 25 mph. At the other site, it’s 30 mph. Police say they place cameras at spots where speeding is a problem. The cameras are designed to catch drivers going at least 10 mph over the speed limit.

AAA Mid-Atlantic says the District has added 66 new speed cameras since January 2014. However, revenue from the cameras dropped to a seven-year low last year.
