'Finely-tuned tax code'? That's a funny one!
I *think* what you're maybe trying to say is that speed cameras are regressive because they don't take account of a user's ability to pay? But nobody has to pay a camera fine, as long as they obey the law, right? Or is it that camera revenue is unpredictable? (no more so than general taxation). Political justification? That applies just as much to camera fines as to taxation. I really just don't see any problem with camera fines going into revenue.

The DC Council consider this bill a priority. The Trust Fund is not as big a voter issue as the speed camera fines. Best of luck to the author in changing that. I have no idea about what the merits of the Trust Fund are. Is it providing affordable housing or distorting the local housing market? I have no idea. What I do know is that it ruins your day if you get a brutal speeding ticket.
