Traffic Safety Cameras being installed on Bothell Way at 165th

Thursday, July 1, 2010

The City of Lake Forest Park is installing a safety camera at NE 165th Street and Bothell Way. This camera will issue citations to cars that traveled illegally through the red light at the intersection.

These safety cameras are being installed with the encouragement of the residents in the neighborhood in order to make the crossing safer for pedestrians. Many people use this intersection throughout the year for transit access to get to the Burke Gilman Trail and, during the summer months to attend the Sheridan Beach Club pool. 

Between 2007 and 2009 there have been 22 collisions in the intersection of NE 165th Street and Bothell Way.

Construction on the camera poles was scheduled to begin the week of June 21. Once the construction is complete and the cameras are operational, the City will be issuing warnings for 30 days. After the warning period, vehicles that run a red light will be charged a fine of $124.

Camera issued citations are treated like parking violations and are not sent to the Department of Licensing.
