Red-light fines get real in Arlington

The grace period is over. Motorists caught cheating by Arlington's new red-light cameras will start getting tickets beginning Wednesday at 12 a.m., officials say.

The cameras started snapping photos of signal violators on June 21, but officials said motorists would only get warnings for the first 30 days. They now face $50 fines.

The cameras are located at eastbound Lee Highway and North Lynn Street; southbound Fort Myer Drive and westbound Lee Highway; westbound Lee Highway at Washington Boulevard; and northbound Glebe Road at Fairfax Drive.

Didn't we work hard to get rid of these cameras?

Oh well, I guess money won out in the end.
