Update on Photo Enforcement Cameras at Intersection of Bothell Way NE and NE 170th Street

The City of Lake Forest Park currently operates Traffic Safety Enforcement Camera Systems around its schools, and at two locations on SR 522/Bothell Way NE. These systems are a safety measure designed to reduce and prevent speeding and collisions. Since its beginning in 2009, the goal of the program has been pedestrian safety in our school zones and collision reduction on SR 522. The program is used as a force-multiplier, adding to the good behavior of drivers and enforcement capacity of the Police Department. The system enables Police Department staff, which is typically running at minimum levels, to perform other functions that address a wide range of public safety tasks.

The photo enforcement cameras at Bothell Way NE and NE 170th Street have been removed while the City reviews data collected over the past year since the system has been in operation at that location, collision information, and also pedestrian safety. Additionally, the City is looking at the SR 522 corridor as a whole, which may include adding an additional system at the intersection of Ballinger Way NE and Bothell Way NE (SR 104 and SR 522). Once the information has been gathered, it will be reported to the City Council for its action. Pedestrian and traffic safety are extremely important to the City, it is our goal to ensure we have systems in place that provide the best possible outcome for our citizens.
