A camera has been installed on the 1100 block of Florida Avenue NE to monitor southeast-bound traffic, police said this morning.

Drivers caught violating the 25 mph speed limit in the next 30 days will receive warning citations. After then, they will receive tickets. Being caught speeding 1-10 mph over the limit has a $50 fine, the Metropolitan Police Department website says. Faster drivers receive higher fines, up to $300.

Another camera is located on the 600 block of Florida Avenue NE to monitor northwest-bound traffic. The full list of speed camera locations in the First District can be found on the MPD website.
