Speed restrictions on NE 178th by Brookside Elementary in LFP

The City Council and Mayor of Lake Forest Park are informing all citizens and residents of an important update regarding traffic safety measures in our city.

Effective June 3, 2024, the school zone cameras at Brookside Elementary along NE 178th Street will be converted to speed cameras operating 24 hours a day. School zone times will continue to issue tickets for speeding over 20 mph, while outside of school zone times the cameras will enforce the posted 25 mph speed limit.

This decision has been made to enhance the safety of our community, particularly for our children, pedestrians, and drivers. There will be a 30-day warning period from June 3 to July 2, during which warnings will be issued to drivers who exceed the posted speed limits. This grace period is intended to give drivers ample time to adjust to the new enforcement policy.

Starting July 3, 2024, tickets will be issued to drivers who exceed the speed limit in this zone. We urge all residents and visitors to adhere to the posted speed limits to ensure the safety of everyone in our community. 

We appreciate your cooperation and understanding as we implement these changes. Your commitment to driving safely helps protect our residents and drivers on the road.

I'm happy to see that Lake Forest Park is taking traffic safety seriously. Higher speeds are only suitable for roads with clear sightlines and adequate separation between cars and people. Without completely rebuilding the road, NE 178th St will never have the former, so low speeds are most appropriate there.

Speed bumps are a more reasonable option

Speed bumps aren't more reasonable b/c they incraes exhaust gases significantly.
