Three sites being evaluated
City of Kenmore staff presented a proposal to the Council for an automated photo enforcement program that would be designed and implemented by the engineering department in 2022.
Three sites for photo enforcement are being evaluated based on the potential safety benefits including school zones on Juanita Drive near Arrowhead Elementary and on 73rd Ave near Kenmore Elementary, and the intersection of 61st Ave and Bothell Way.
Revenue from fines issued by the program will support the City’s traffic safety and pavement preservation programs. This approach ensures road upkeep costs are shared with drivers who travel through Kenmore, not just Kenmore residents. A public hearing is scheduled for January 24, 2022.
