There are certainly difficulties with enforcement.

I've often wondered if there's anyway that WMATA and MPD could partner and install cameras (outward facing) on buses to take photos of offending vehicles. Roving photo enforcement, if you will. When the bus encounters a vehicle parked illegally, or blocking a bus lane/bus stop, the bus operator could push a button to take a photo - the violator would receive a ticket in the mail. This seems like a win-win for both WMATA and the city. Maybe there could be a revenue split.

Anyone know if there's anything like that in use anywhere and what the legal issues might be?
