Warnings for violators of new Kent red light cameras ending

By: KIRO 7 News Staff

KENT, Wash. – The city of Kent will begin issuing tickets Tuesday at its three new red light cameras installed at high-collision intersections.  

Violators started receiving written warnings in the mail as enforcement started on July 13. That warning period will end.

Violators who are caught will receive a $136 ticket. It will count as a civil penalty.

The city reviewed collision data over the last five years to select the intersections and divided its response into two stages. 

The phase one cameras are located at:

Central Avenue North and East Smith Street
Central Avenue North and East James Street
Kent Des Moines Road and Pacific Highway South
