Judge OK’s Mukilteo red light camera vote

Associated Press
MUKILTEO, Wash. — A Snohomish County Superior Court ruled Friday that Mukilteo voters will have their say in November on red light cameras. Political activist Tim Eyman, who sponsored the initiative, says this will be the first time voters in the state have had a chance to decide on the automatic ticketing systems. He says it could lead to similar votes in more than 20 other Washington cities. Mukilteo’s measure would require a public vote for any red light or speed zone camera in the city. It also would limit fines to the least-expensive parking ticket. The city council agreed to put the initiative on the ballot, but that action was challenged in a lawsuit by a group calling itself Mukilteo Citizens for Simple Government.
