Today is the first day of classes in the Edmonds School District and that means the automated speed cameras in two school zones will be turned back on.
The cameras are located in front of Lynnwood Elementary on 44th Ave. W. and on 168th St. SW near Meadowdale High, Middle and Elementary schools, as well as Beverly Elementary.
They operate from 60 minutes before the start of school to 30 minutes after the start of school, and 30 minutes before the end of school to 60 minutes after. The city council amended the hours last year after drivers complained they were ticketed in the middle of the day when no children were present.
Fines are $124 for traveling 29 to 35 miles per hour and $250 for driving more than 36 miles per hour.
