Where are Washington’s most prolific traffic cameras? Check this map

A traffic camera in Renton captured the most red-light runners in 2018 – 28,822 violations.

The cities of Renton, Des Moines and Fife each had a red-light camera that gave out more tickets last year than anywhere else in Washington state, a KING 5 analysis of statewide data found. 

The red-light camera at the intersection of Benson Drive South and South Puget Drive in Renton caught westbound drivers 28,822 times in 2018 — the highest number of citations issued statewide. 

It's almost double the amount of tickets issued at the state's second red-light camera hot spot — the right-hand turn lane at Kent Des Moines Road and Pacific Highway in Des Moines. The red-light camera at that intersection caught westbound drivers 15,699 times last year, according to city data.

In Fife, at 54th Avenue East and 20th Street, southbound drivers were issued red-light camera citations 10,762 times last year. Lynnwood and Federal Way issued the fourth and fifth highest number of citations from a single red-light camera. 

In 2018, the city of Seattle had more red-light and school-zone cameras than anywhere else in the state. The highest-ticketing red-light camera in Seattle, which recorded just over 3,700 red-light runners in 2018, is located at James Street and 6th Avenue. The highest-ticketing school-zone cameras are located near two Seattle schools: Mercer Middle School and Montlake Elementary.
