According to an article in the Washington Times, The District of Columbia issued 53,094 citations from its 49 red-light-camera locations in the first seven months of the current fiscal year, raising $4.3 million in fines.

Fenty wants to expand the program to bring in $20 million—modifying red-light cameras to catch speeder, using laser technology in tunnels, and photographing those selfish, inconsiderate drivers who push their way into the middle of intersections and create gridlock.
