DeEvening Links: What’s in a traffic camera?

A traffic camera on Branch Avenue SE reveals some interesting cleavages in the rough-and-tumble world of neighborhood activism. The Rev. Bill Bennett, who’s running for the Ward 7 D.C. Council seat, says the camera unfairly targets low-income and fixed-income members of his flock. Meanwhile, the Hillcrest Community Civic Association says tough cookies: “While some frame the financial penalty as unfair and unjust, we believe the impact of speeding motorists on our quality of life is unfair and unjust.”
