The City of Lynnwood pioneered the use of red light intersection and school zone speeding traffic cameras about 10 years ago. So far its one of the very few cities in Snohomish County to use them.
Red light cameras operate in several major Lynnwood intersections. School zone speeding cameras operate during the school day. The Lynnwood Police Department claims these cameras have reduced intersection collisions and school zone pedestrian injuries. But they admit that they have no hard data to support this claim.
If ticketed through a traffic camera, the car owner (not the car driver) receives a ticket in the mail several weeks later. The penalty is currently $134.00. The ticketed car owner can review the camera video before deciding whether to fight or pay it. However, traffic camera tickets do not go on the car owner’s Washington driving record so auto insurance rates are not affected.
