DC Speeding Ticket Sidewalk Scene

photos by wayan

If you speed on K Street NW this month, you’re going to meet DC’s finest around 23rd Street as you come from under the Washington Circle tunnel. There, on the right-hand sidewalk will be Mr. Police Man with his laser speed gun, clocking your lead foot and tagging your license with points and fines.

I watched two officers tag-team K Street one afternoon, writing speeding tickets on every batch of cars zipping up the hill, and unlike others, even welcomed my photography. Their goal is speed limit enforcement and they were happy to have ticket-writing publicity.

No word on the wants of the cabbie pulled over for speeding, but I’m sure we all know what he was thinking…
