Street Sweepers with Cameras to begin Dry Run March 9

Recommended Posts

Guest Nancee Lyons

I just wanted to make you aware that the Department of Public Works (DPW) will test the “Sweepercam,” license plate recognition equipment mounted on seven street sweepers from Monday, March 9, through Friday, March 27. DPW will use the three weeks to make sure cameras and sweeper operators are fully in-sync to ensure a reliable system by March 30. The dry run will occur on residential sweeper routes citywide. During this dry run, no parking tickets will be issued.


Sweepercams will be deployed Monday, March 23, when mechanical sweeping on residential streets posted with “No Parking/Street Cleaning” signs begins. Parking tickets, which carry a $30 fine, will be issued, beginning March 30, to vehicles parked during street sweeping hours. Tickets may be issued either by the “Sweepercam” technology or Parking Control Officers.


The Sweepercams will capture the image of vehicles parked in the sweeping lane during restricted hours to improve parking enforcement. Generally, parking is prohibited for two hours while sweeping is underway. A total of 12 sweeper cams will be in use on residential sweeper routes by May 2009.


For more information about DPW’s street sweeping program and for frequently asked questions about Sweepercam, visit www.dpw.dc.gov and review Brochures and Fact Sheets under the Information section.
