WASHINGTON (WUSA9) - D.C. Government has 6,000 vehicles traveling the streets of Washington. And some of the city employees behind the wheel are crashing their government owned vehicles over and over again, and still keeping their jobs. Taxpayers are paying millions for all that bad driving. Records obtained from the D.C. Office of Risk Management, the agency that watches for risky behavior by D.C. employees, shows The District has paid $4.3 million in accident settlements over the last five years.
WASHINGTON (WUSA9) - Lamar Trowers saw the flash right away as he drove eastbound in the 2200 block of K Street downtown. One of DC’s automated traffic enforcement cameras had tagged him for going 36 mph in a 25 mph zone. It was a $100 fine that Trowers never saw coming. “Sometimes you can’t see the signs they’re obscured,” Trowers said of the yellow “photo enforcement” warning signs that are supposed to alert drivers a speed camera is nearby.
WASHINGTON (WUSA9) - As a nation watched, madness turned to mourning in Charlottesville, Virginia. Racial tensions exploded at a white nationalist rally August 11 and 12, held in the shadow of Confederate statues of Robert E. Lee and Stonewall Jackson. Three people died and a movement to remove monuments to the Confederacy was reborn.

Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
