use this, never roll over and pay the DC government

To Whom it May Concern,
I received a letter claiming I committed a violation of a speeding law in the District of Columbia on (DATE). As per the instructions, I am writing to plead ‘not guilty’ to this charge. Although this option is said to result in this matter going to court; it is my suggestion that the charges simply be dropped. This suggestion comes out of respect for tax payers, and my request that their hard earned money not be wasted in such proceedings. As there is no evidence of my involvement with this alleged ‘crime’, as well as the fact that I am not granted my 4th amendment right to face my ‘accuser’ (a camera); I see no way the government could prove my guilt beyond a reasonable doubt. I also see find no legal requirement for me to implicate someone else in this process, as it is the government’s responsibility to prove a person’s guilt. It is also my 5th amendment right to remain silent on the matter.
If it is the government’s decision to move forward in this matter, I would request copies of any evidence the prosecution may have of my involvement in the “offense”; as well as, all maintenance records for the camera(s) involved.
Sincerely,

Me shakes my head.........I mean we have NOBODY else to choose from?!?! It is like having the last pick on the team between the fat kid that hasn't run more than 50 yards in his life and the wheezing kid with asthma who can't breathe unless standing absolutely still. Nothing against fat kids with asthma but they aren't the best choices for physical activity. I'm going to write in Fitz for "Gov-na".

If that happens it's time to burn Richmond again. If you've gone there you know it can only be an improvement.

We have a third choice, and as polls go right now, he's up around 10%... and that's partly because McAwful and Kookinelli both have such high negative opinions.

Every politician should serve two terms... one in office followed immediately by an equal or longer-length one in jail... except in New Jersey where jail time is a pre-requisite to holding office.

Don't think this will continue to be an accepted excuse. Ultimately what DC does is attach the fine to the vehicle's registration, they pursue you and after a certain period, contact your state's DMV and your state will put an administrative hold on your registration so that you cannot re-register the car until you pay the jurisdiction's fine, receive a receipt, and THEN you have to pay your state's DMV a fee ($75 for MD) to lift the administrative hold.

Here are the latest $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ figures.....

hand over end of cash...

Local governments turning red lights into green - WTOP.com





Local governments turning red lights into green

inShare
Monday - 7/28/2014, 3:46pm ET

By Mike Murillo
More Reports

WASHINGTON -- Red light cameras are pulling in big dollars for local governments in the Washington, D.C., area, according to new data from AAA Mid-Atlantic.

Red light camera programs in cities like D.C. and Rockville, and Montgomery, Prince George's and Arlington counties raked in $21 million combined in 2013, the data show.

Montgomery County, Maryland saw the biggest boost. In 2012, its 22,616 tickets pulled in $1,919,602 in ticket revenue; in 2013, that number jumped to $2,806,690 with 43,522 tickets issued -- a 94 percent increase.

As of March, the county has earned $2,805,125 from 46,109 red light runners. That puts them on course to shatter last year's total, thanks in part to 10 new cameras.

"It's way too much," says Michael Blau of Frederick, Maryland. "Some of these red light cameras are in bad spots [and] they're timed the wrong way."

"I think they're a very good idea, just for controlling driver aggressiveness," says Kathryn Zimmeran of Bethesda, Maryland.

Still, John Townsend has heard the complaints.

"Many drivers complain they were traveling the speed limit when the signal changed to yellow and they came to a sudden stop in the crosswalk or beyond the stop line to avoid getting a costly red-light camera ticket," says Townsend, a spokesman with AAA Mid-Atlantic.

Ironically, Townsend says, motorists assert they wouldn't get tickets if they enter the intersection on yellow, or if the traffic signal changes to red while they're in the middle of the intersection.

In the end, the car owner is forced to pay up.

In D.C., the number of tickets dropped -- from 91,550 in 2012 to 84,293 in 2013. Even with fewer tickets issued, the city earned more money from red light runners last year compared with 2012.

That year, D.C. pulled $13,119,310 from the citations, compared with $12,979,673 in 2012. As of March of this year, the district has already pulled in $3,761,790.

D.C. also has the highest ticket prices in the region; running a red light will get you a $150 citation. Maryland charges you $75; Virginia charges $50.

Prince George's County actually lost money from 2012 to 2013. The county's 23 cameras pulled in $2,813,255 in 2012 and $2,812,132 a year later.

The county is in the process of upgrading its cameras to newer models.

While most cameras look for you to block the box or cross an intersection as the light turns red, some are even more sophisticated. In Arlington County, some drivers receive tickets for making a "rolling" right turn on a red. Some cameras also look for drivers in the intersection after a green arrow turns red.

Rockville pulled in $1.7 million in 2013 with 22,667 red light camera citations.

In Arlington County, Va., eight new cameras in 2013 brought in $588,688 compared to $369,000 in 2012.
