The efforts of a D.C. police sergeant to force a refund of $1.8 million in allegedly invalid speed-camera tickets represent just one aspect of what he says is ailing the District's automated speed-enforcement program.
He added, "I guess the concern is that we keep the understanding that this type of speed enforcement is not revenue based but was put into place to save lives and change the public's driving behavior. I was just sent a [Freedom of Information Act] request that looks as if the requestor may be attempting to show that [D.C. police are] taking two different approaches when it comes to how we operate unattended speed enforcement sites."
"Tickets w/fines that have been issued could potentially come under scrutiny by someone versed in the field of photo enforcement, the media or maybe even AAA," he wrote. "A suggestion was made to kill all of the tickets and request a rescind on tickets that have already been issued."
