City Paper is not for tourists
The Department of Motor Vehicles this afternoon was kind enough to forward on this picture of Mayor Adrian M. Fenty speeding, in response to a records request by LL.
According to the camera readout [PDF], the mayoral Smart Car was doing 43 in a 30 mph zone at 3:19 p.m. on May 11.
LL first disclosed the mayoral speeding ticket last week. Fenty spokesperson Mafara Hobson explained that Hizzoner had been attending a walkthrough at the Watts Branch Rec Center in far Northeast Washington before heading to a press conference at DCPS headquarters on North Capitol Street—-about 60 blocks from where the ticket was issued.
The presser was scheduled for 3:15, which would explain the lead foot.
