Washington, District of Columbia Speed Traps
25 mph K Street NW, Westbound
25 MPH limit in area where K St. goes under Washington Circle. It is an express line under the traffic circle, inducing higher speeds.
Photo radar, speed limit changes from 50 to 25 and you’re nabbed. After the camera it goes back up to 35. This trap made the local news: http://www.nbcwashington.com/traffic/transit/Speed-Camera-Catches-Many-for-Thousands-in-Fines-374955021.html
This is an incredibly unfair speed trap located after a red light to catch motorists accelerating to enter the highway.
If you are over in Park View heading down toward Michigan Avenue, be careful! There is usually a Police Car parked in the right lane, often hiding between other parked cars. The policeman uses a radar gun and takes your picture, and then you get a ticket in the mail a few weeks later. The speed limit is only 25 MPH and so keep it slow or you could get an expensive ticket in the mail!
