If you’ve got a lead foot, you should probably slow down, especially — soon — on three particular Arlington streets.
At the County Board meeting on Tuesday, County Manager Mark Schwartz announced the first three streets that would be subject to the new fine.
- Carlin Springs Road from Columbia Pike to George Mason Drive — through the Glencarlyn and Arlington Forest neighborhoods
- Military Road from Old Glebe Road to Nelly Custis Drive — through the Bellevue Forest and Donaldson Run neighborhoods
- Lorcom Lane from Military Road to Spout Run Parkway — through the Maywood and Woodmont neighborhoods
The $200 fine would be in addition to standard $6 for every mile per hour above the speed limit and the $66 in court fees.
Schwartz said the meeting was the first announcement of which streets would have the new fines, but emphasized that there would be more public notification before the change goes into effect. Schwartz did not specify when the new fines would be implemented.
“We will put more out there,” Schwartz said. “People should not think today, all of a sudden, we flipped the switch.”
