WASHINGTON (AP) — Traffic cameras around Washington will start issuing tickets for more traffic infractions this weekend.
Cameras have issued hundreds of thousands of tickets for speeding and running red lights, but The Washington Post reports that on Saturday, they will begin targeting vehicles that block intersections or roll through stop signs too. Those violations can bring $50 fines.READ MORE: Baltimore Ravens Jaylon Ferguson Dead From Toxic Drug Cocktail, Autopsy Shows
The cameras will also catch vehicles that fail to yield to pedestrians, pass through an intersection at an unsafe speed and oversized buses or trucks on streets that are too small to accommodate them. The fines for these violations are $250.READ MORE: University of Maryland Medicine Release Findings On Death Of Pig Heart Transplant Recipient
