$50 Photo

October 22, 2005

Here’s me, in my freshly-cleaned car, headed out of the city to teach an ethics class in Woodbridge.

If you’d like a similarly striking photo, simply exit the 3rd Street tunnel westbound at about 55 MPH. The DC government will send you a cool photo just like this; yours for only fifty bucks.

    nice one buddy.

    you got me thinking mike…

    looks like it displays your speed right on the photo there in the lower left… thinking i can use this to calibrate my speedo…

    do you know if its like a buck per MPH or do they charge a flat rate? (there are three digits there…)

    Hey the pic I got in the mail was only black and white! How’d you get color? Do you have to be cool to get color? Cause I don’t think I am.

    My au pair got three pictures, each one for running a red light. But the car was registered in my name… so I got the friendly letters. On the back is a place to say that you were not the driver. It had to be notarized. I was a bit upset that the notary didn’t believe me when I said I really wasn’t the driver. “That’s what they all say.” he said laughing.

    Sounds like quite a bargain, actually. Mine, courtesy of San Diego County, was quite a bit pricier. Perhaps the nature of the offense came into play (running a red light). Makes it tough to argue, doesn’t it?
