Default DC Mayor Muriel Bowser pushing for $500 speeding tickets, 15 mph speed limits

Full article at https://wjla.com/news/local/500-spee...-washington-dc

"The proposed changes include upping the fine for going 25 mph over the speed limit from the current $300 to $400 on Washington freeways and interstates and $500 on city streets. It would also create designated “Safe Zones” with speed limits of 15 mph for roads next to "school facilities and grounds serving youth" as well as "a playground, recreational facility, pool, athletic field, or senior center designated by official signs.”

AAA says there have been 27 recorded traffic deaths in D.C. so far in 2018, which is already 12.5 percent more than all of 2017. Despite the intentions of the resolution, it is already facing criticism.

“There is not a shred of empirical evidence that proves that higher traffic fines deter bad driving behavior," John Townsend II, AAA Mid-Atlantic’s Manager of Public and Government Affairs said in a statement. "This is about generating revenue under the patina of traffic safety.""
