School is back in, and so are traffic cameras

School is back in session and so are the speed cameras along Second Avenue Southeast.
The cameras were installed to reduce speed and increase safety.
The cameras, which operate from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. on school days, monitor traffic in both directions along Second Avenue Southeast near Clark Elementary, Issaquah High and Tiger Mountain Community High schools.
Vehicles that exceed the school zone’s speed limit of 20 mph are photographed and videotaped. Infractions are mailed to the registered owners of speeding vehicles.
The infraction is a noncriminal offense that, like a parking ticket, is not part of the violator’s driving record. Those who receive an infraction have the option of paying the $124 fine in full, requesting a hearing or submitting a “declaration of nonresponsibility.”
