To improve safety on one of Bellevue's busiest streets, motorists running red lights at two intersections on 148th Avenue Northeast will be caught on camera starting Jan. 4.
Expanding on the use of cameras for school zone speeders, the red light cameras will be located where 148th Avenue crosses Main Street and Bel-Red Road. To accustom drivers to the photo enforcement, police will only issue warnings for 30 days.
After Feb. 2, the registered owner of a vehicle photographed running a red light will be sent a citation and fined $124. The photo-enforcement cameras will capture still images and video of cars that enter these intersections after the light has turned red.
In April the City Council approved the use speed-zone and red-light cameras on a trial basis. Cameras were installed to enforce speed limits in the Stevenson and Lake Hills elementary school zones in September.
