Our Commitment to Racial & Educational Justice

This fall, the cities of Bothell and Kenmore have both launched photo enforcement programs to enhance student safety and enforce school zone speed limits. During student drop-off in the morning and pick-up in the afternoon, you will see flashing beacons and speeding tickets will be issued with the help of photo enforcement to drivers who violate the 20 mph school zone speed limit near 9 school sites.
