WASHINGTON (WUSA9) -- Former mayor and current D.C. Council member Marion Barry has racked up more than $2,800 in unpaid parking and speeding tickets since 2012.

City records revealed numerous unpaid citations two days after Barry was injured and cited for a car accident on Pennsylvania Avenue in Southeast Washington.

Council members have special plates and are exempt from some parking regulations, but there is no exemption for moving violations.

Barry's citations include failure to display current tags, parking in front of a fire hydrant, speeding, and running a red light, according to the report.

After his Saturday collision, Barry told WUSA9's Bruce Johnson he crashed because he became disoriented after he took medication on an empty stomach. He said he was trying to make a turn and he hit another car.
