Tacoma speed cameras raising millions in revenue

Since Tacoma started fining speeding drivers on December 2, they have issued, or will be issuing, over 2,000 tickets to registered owners of cars caught speeding on Bay Street near the Emerald Queen Casino. At $101 fine per ticket, the city could raise approximately $11 million in revenue reports The Tacoma News Tribune.

A speed camera near Downing Elementary School has not caught any speeders since its installation. The school zone camera is activated 30 minutes before school begins and 30 minutes after it ends. The city has also installed signage which, along with the camera, seems to be an effective deterrent to speeding.

The area where the Bay Street camera installed is at a curve where there are approximately 100 car accidents per year. Police hope that the installation of the camera will reduce accidents.
