WASHINGTON (AP) — Motorists will have to watch out for 15 new traffic cameras in the District of Columbia.

Police say the 14 speed cameras and one camera that targets oversized trucks will debut Tuesday.

The speed cameras primarily target areas with posted speed limits of 25 mph and are stationed across the District, from Massachusetts Avenue northwest to Martin Luther King Avenue southeast.

Violators will get warnings for the first 30 days, but after that a violation will cost $50 for 1 to 10 mph above the limit, $100 for 11 mph to 15 mph over and up to $300 for driving in excess of 26 mph above the limit.

One camera on Monroe Street northeast will target oversized trucks.
