D.C. issues record $1 BILLION in traffic and parking tickets, AAA calls it ‘predatory’
Take some advice from someone who drives into Washington DC often. If possible park in a garage.
In a study comparing the nation’s 25 largest metro areas, D.C. had the highest traffic fines per capita by a long shot at $170 per person, the next closest, Chicago, was $101.
Yet we could not find any research or studies that indicated D.C.’s drivers, pedestrians or cyclists are any safer than in other states with lower fines.
