WASHINGTON (ABC7) - The District processed nearly 2.7 million traffic and parking citations during Fiscal Year 2016 (FY 2016), AAA Mid-Atlantic noted in a report released Thursday.

"The monetary value of those levied citations was nearly $300 million," AAA states in the report.

From FY 2015 to FY 2016, fine amounts rose over $43 million from one budget cycle to the next, according to the federation of North American motor clubs.

"Overall, the sheer number of remunerative photo-enforced tickets processed skyrocketed a staggering 67.8 percent in the 12-month period from FY15 to FY16," John B. Townsend II, AAA Mid-Atlantic's Manager of Public and Government Affairs, said. "Even so, the number of tickets for moving violations increased nominally by 6.7 percent, while the number of parking tickets processed dropped by 9.5 percentage points."

Although millions of traffic citations were issued in FY 2016 , over 777,000 went unpaid during that budget cycle putting the city over $125 million in the hole, AAA notes.

The D.C. Department of Motor Vehicles did collect over $163 million in ticket fines during last year's budget cycle, while collection agencies collected nearly $25 million.

AAA reports that "the number of tickets left unpaid increased 23.8 percent from FY15 to FY16. It's an increase of 149,650 unpaid citations over the budget cycles, as the tally went from 627,574 unpaid tickets in fiscal 15 to 777,224 unsettled citations in fiscal 16."

In terms of what each states owes in unpaid citations, AAA states: "Maryland residents owed 115 percent more than Virginia residents ... and they were on the hook for 133 percent more in outstanding fines than District residents owed a year ago."

According to the report, Maryland residents owed over $55 million in unpaid citations in FY 2016, while Virginia residents owed over $25 million. D.C. residents owed nearly $24 million in unpaid tickets. Residents from other areas owed over $20 million in "uncollected traffic citations."

The citations issued include speed-camera tickets, red-light camera tickets, parking tickets and moving violation tickets.

D.C.'s fiscal year runs from October 1 to September 30.

AAA reports that within the first three months of FY 2017, D.C. processed nearly $54 million in ticket fines and fees.

Are my tickets tax deductible?

the numbers only show the amount that was not paid by drivers in each state not the total amount.

True.
Maryland doesn't give a damn about some damn fines.

As a DC resident, who often walks and crosses streets, I'd be thrilled to have people slow the fark down instead.
There is always some one slow crossing the street downtown. These peiple walk slow like that to get attention I think. I kind of look at them thinking what is wrong with this person.
