The group who brought the lawsuit says the amount of the tickets issued is more than is allowed by state law which says tickets generated by the use of traffic cameras will be processed the same way as parking infractions and the amount of the tickets issued should not exceed those of parking infractions.>>

SPOKANE, Wash. - Beginning Monday morning, red light cameras at four new intersections will begin taking photos of red light runners.

Warning notices will be issued for the first 31 days and starting April 1, citations will be given. There is no fine for a warning notice.

The new photo enforcement cameras will be located at the following intersections:

  • Freya St. northbound at 3rd Ave.
  • 2nd Ave. westbound at Thor St.
  • Wellesley Ave. eastbound at Ash St.
  • Division St. northbound at Sprague Ave.

Spokane already has three intersections with cameras that have been up and running since October 1, 2008.  Since that time, they've captured over 7500 red light runners. 

It's important to note that the warning period is only for the new intersections.

The original photo enforcement cameras will continue to issue citations to red-light runners and are located at the following intersections:

  • Browne St. southbound at Sprague Ave.
  • Hamilton St. northbound at Mission Ave. 
  • Division St. north and southbound at Francis Ave.

"The warning period will give our residents an opportunity to familiarize themselves with the public safety goals of our red-light program before the actual citations begin," said Sgt. Eric Olsen.
