School is back in session
We care about keeping our kids safe and we hope our customers do too. But if that’s not motivation enough, consider that in Washington State, the fine for speeding in a school zone starts at $189 and can go up to nearly $800, depending on how fast you’re driving. YIKES!!!
Not only will be the police be watching these zones, but now so will cameras. The City of Renton has set up automated enforcement speeding cameras at the following schools:
Renton High School has a speed camera and flashing lights will operate:
Monday through Thursday 6:50 a.m. to 7:50 a.m., 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., and 1:30 to 2:30 p.m.
Friday 8:20 a.m. to 9:20 a.m., 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., and 1:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m.
McKnight Middle School has a speed camera and flashing lights will operate:
Monday through Thursday 7:25 a.m. to 8:25 a.m., and 2:05 p.m. to 3:05 p.m.
Friday 8:55 a.m. to 9:55 a.m., and 2:05 p.m. to 3:05 p.m.
Talbot Hill Elementary has a speed camera and flashing lights will operate:
Monday through Thursday 8:30 a.m. to 9:30 a.m., 11:10 a.m. tl 1:30 p.m., and 3:05 to 4:05 p.m.
Friday 10:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m., and 3:05 p.m. to 4:05 p.m.
These beacon flashing schedules are for normal school days and do not operate during scheduled school holidays/summer breaks.
It is also 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.
