New cameras catching even more Spokane drivers speeding, running red lights

New data may make you a bit more careful behind the wheel as you head into work.

Cameras are catching more drivers speeding and running red lights across Spokane.

New numbers from mid-September through mid-October show 1,800 drivers were ticketed for speeding. That’s nearly double the amount that were caught by speed cameras in the same timeframe last year.

The increase is thanks to three new cameras near Ridgeview and Willard Elementary schools. Those cameras issued nearly 900 violations in the previous 30-day period.

The single camera that continues to catch the most speeders is near Longfellow Elementary. That location alone issued 750 tickets.

Across the city, cameras caught 1,900 drivers running red lights. That is an increase of more than 300 from the same time last year (and no new cameras were added!)

The camera that continues to catch the most violators is at the intersection of Third and Freya. That camera caught nearly 300 drivers running red lights last month.

Nearly 200 drivers got tickets for running a red light near Browne and Sprague.

Earlier this year, Spokane Police told 4 News Now that infractions continue to be on the rise.

If you don’t slow down, you’ll have to pay up. Running a red light will cost you at least $124. If you’re caught speeding in a school zone, be prepared to pay nearly $200.
