This is the view southbound on Sherman Avenue NW as you approach Florida Avenue NW – that parked police car is there specifically to give you a speeding ticket. I know not because I got one, but because after noticing it there for a few days in a row, I stopped and asked the officer what they were doing.
On the front dashboard of the police cruiser was a super-fancy speed camera that was photographing speeders as they zoomed down Sherman Avenue NW pretty much all day – from the morning rush hour to past dusk. And that police car has been there since at least early July.
So be aware. You’ve been warned of the Sherman Avenue speed trap.
