Stiffer Penalties in Traffic Enforcement

Motorists who ignore traffic safety laws in the District now face stiffer penalties. Drivers who do not stop and give the right of way to pedestrians in crosswalks now face a $250 fine and three points on their driver’s license. If the driver strikes a pedestrian in the process of failing to stop, the penalty is $500 and 6 points.
