We've all had to stop short of running into another car in the middle of the intersection for drivers who think they can squeak through the light. Speeding and running red lights jeopardize public safety on a daily basis. To counteract this danger the City of Lake Forest Park implemented a photo enforcement program. The city installed a red light camera and installed a system of sensors to capture speed and cameras to photograph the rear of the violator's vehicle and license plate in school zones.
It is important for citizens to know that photo enforcement violations do not get applied to their driving record. The violations are not recorded by the Washington State Department of Licensing. As with a parking ticket, it does not matter who drives the vehicle, it's the registered owner who is responsible for the violation.
