Seattle Association Asks City for Traffic Light Quid Pro Quo



While Fauntleroy Community Association (FCA) board members say they’re fine with the Seattle Police’s plan to install a fixed speed-monitoring/ticketing camera in the Gatewood Elementary school zone on nearby Fauntleroy Way, part of the association’s property, they’ve asked for a current southbound warning light to be moved from the area, in exchange. The FCA made its request to the police department in a letter, pointing out that the current light isn’t effective for slowing down traffic near the community. The installation of the new camera is expected within a few weeks, before school begins. Speeders caught by the camera face $189 tickets. The police department has yet to respond to the quid pro quo request for the other light’s removal.
