No more warnings for school zone speeders

When classes resume on Monday, school zone speed cameras outside two Spokane elementary schools will start sending out tickets to the registered owners of cars caught exceeding the speed limit.

The cameras at Finch Elementary and Longfellow Elementary were installed in November and have been issuing warnings since then. The cameras are active when the school zone beacons are flashing.

Since the cameras went active on Nov. 17 the city sent warnings to 621 drivers going east on Northwest Boulevard past Finch Elementary and 1,255 warnings were given to drivers going south on Nevada Street past Longfellow Elementary.

Tickets range from $214 to $808 depending on the speed of the car.
