Update: Chef Geoff’s speed camera headache gone — for now

Remember the speed camera on Foxhall Road that drove Chef Geoff Tracy crazy? Gone. The Washington restaurateur — who racked up $425 in fines before he noticed the camera in his neighborhood — mounted a very public campaign alerting his neighbors and customers, even going so far as to hire one of those outdoor sign-spinning guys with a big arrow to point at the electronic enforcer. The camera was removed last week, MPD spokeswoman Gwendolyn Crump told us— but it had nothing to do with Tracy’s protest. Construction forced police to relocate the camera to the 4200 block of South Dakota Avenue NE, she said, and another will be placed somewhere on Foxhall later. “I haven’t done any victory laps,” Tracy told us. “And I have not gotten any other tickets, period.”
