If you’re often in a hurry when commuting and have a school zone or two on your route, take note: Seattle has installed some new cameras to catch you in the act and issue you a hefty ticket.

In the King 5 report above, they report that six new schools have installed cameras to catch those speeding through school zones while the lights are flashing. And drivers won’t get warnings any longer — the city is going straight to sending a $234 citation.

King 5 lists the six new camera locations at: Northgate, Montlake, Bailey Gatzert, K-8 STEM and Arbor Heights, and Rainer View Elementary Schools; and Mercer Middle School.

That brings the citywide total to 14 cameras. You will know it’s school zone time when the yellow lights are flashing next to the speed limit signs. Drop your speed to 20 mph and avoid the $234 fine.
