On June 18, 2019, the D.C. Policy Center’s article, Predominately black neighborhoods in D.C. bear the brunt of automated traffic enforcement, was cited by Our Streets MPLS:
Washington D.C. adopted Vision Zero in 2015. The City went into Vision Zero with black residents making up 70% of traffic related arrests, despite making up less than 50% of the population. Five years later in 2018 data showed drivers in predominantly black neighborhoods were 17 times more likely to receive a moving violation than those in predominantly white neighborhoods. Notably, these disparities exist even though Washington D.C. relies heavily on automated camera enforcement.
