Everett pauses on red light cameras
EVERETT — A City Council vote scheduled for Feb. 9 on whether to get quotes to install red light cameras at key intersection got delayed last week.
A council majority generally support the idea on safety grounds, but some members want more analysis done.
Councilwoman Paula Rhyne requested the city look into whether red light running violations, a $124 ticket, would disproportionately penalize low-income residents.
Councilman Ben Zarlingo suggested restricting any red light ticket revenue to specifically go toward making the intersections selected for cameras safer. Other council members agreed. Otherwise, any money leftover would go into the citywide roadways fund after reimbursing the camera company contract and other costs.
