The Deepest Shithole in the US Continues to Be Washington D.C.

New D.C. traffic cameras monitor stop signs, intersections: Sixteen cameras trained on crosswalks will record drivers as pedestrians step into the crosswalks, and violations will be issued for drivers who fail to stop for the pedestrians when they have the right of way.
Twenty gridlock cameras will also capture the license plates of vehicles that fail to clear crosswalks or intersections before a traffic signal changes and block traffic. Another 32 cameras will be placed at stop signs to ticket drivers who do not come to a complete stop, and 24 speed cameras will be placed at intersections.

Your Say

With Treacher in mind, I wonder how many of those tickets will magically disappear for people on "official" business?

I've never enjoyed stepping in sh1t and these comments are just more evidential reasons why I've never wanted to go to my country's capital. Screw the place, it's too demonic for anyone with a soul.

Any bets on whether the rules will be applied equally to all, or if exemptions will be made for Congresscritters, White House staff, Cabinet members, and SC Justices? I'm guessing the latter. Rules are for the peasants.

I saw a car today with D.C. license tag that had their whiny "Taxation Without Representation" beef on it. I figure that's really not a standout problem amongst the several million Conservatives who no longer have a voice in their government.

If Quantative Easing isn't taxation w/o representation, nothing is. I guess that's the point.
