Traffic: 3 car collision on NE 175th; 115mph on the freeway

Monday, May 25, 2020

Shoreline Fire reported a three car collision at NE 175th and 10th Ave NE around 5:30pm Sunday.

It's a signalized intersection with good visibility. Fire did not report injuries and cleared the scene quickly.

On Saturday morning before 9am, Trooper Dennis stopped a vehicle on northbound I-5 at 145th going 115mph! That's 55 over the speed limit. And the driver had no insurance and was violating the HOV lane.

And, out of the three, driving improperly in the HOV lane carries the highest possible fine – up to $686 if it's the third or more time in a two-year period they've been caught doing that, $886 if they were using a dummy or a mannequin.

Compare that to the speeding fine, which tops out at $423 for 40 mph or higher. Thus, the fine for 55 mph over the limit is the same as 40 mph over. It's $450 for driving without insurance.

Why is the highest priority for fines driving solo in the HOV lane and not the excess speeding? Which infraction endangers other motorists more???
