The Bellevue Reporter reports that the Bellevue City Council is considering a police department recommendation to place more red light cameras around the city.
The police department cites the following reasons for exapnding the program:
- Increased city revenue
- Improving driver habits
- Reducing car accidents
According to the Reporter, the current traffic enforcement cameras have brought in $2.3 million in revenue with an expense of about a quarter of a million.
The police department recommends that red-light cameras be placed in the following intersections:
- Westbound Northeast Eighth Street and 116th Avenue Northeast
- East and westbound Northeast Eighth and 112th Avenue Northeast east
- Southbound speed zone camera for Sunset Elementary at West Lake Sammamish Boulevard.
The current contract for existing cameras expires on April 30th.
