Police delay issuing traffic-camera tickets

D.C. police are delaying the issuance of tickets from a new set of traffic enforcement cameras.

Officials had expected to have the cameras in use, issuing tickets Monday, but they want to make sure the locations have been issuing warnings for 30 days first. The cameras were installed in late November.

The cameras are at intersections with known speeding problems. They are expected to track drivers who speed and violate other traffic rules, such as rolling through stop signs, crosswalks and intersections.

The cameras are also expected to track vehicles that “block the box” at intersections and drivers who fail to stop in residential neighborhoods, according to police.

Woman in pink robs 2nd Pr. George’s bank

The lady in pink has struck again, police say.

Prince George’s County police said they think a woman dressed all in pink who robbed a bank Dec. 2 hit another bank Friday.

The woman, wearing a light pink head scarf and a pink jacket and holding a pink cellphone entered a Capital One Bank in the 5800 block of Eastern Avenue about 5:30 p.m. Friday and gave the teller a note demanding cash.

“Fearing for her safety, the teller complied,” police said in a statement. The woman left with an undisclosed amount of money.

Police say the robber in both cases has been described as a black female in her late 20s, approximately 5 feet 8 to 5 feet 11.

Police are asking anyone with information to call 301-772-4905 or 866-411-TIPS (8477).
