See Adrian Fenty Speeding Down East Capitol Street!

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.
