Mayor Mike McGinn said he expected traffic cameras near four Seattle schools to catch a lot of speeding drivers when the devices went live Nov. 1.
But almost 6,000 in less than a month?
"We were surprised," McGinn said.
....If drivers keep exceeding the speed limit in the numbers they did in November, the city of Seattle could collect between $2 million and $4 million in ticket revenue a year, McGinn said.Which might be one of the reasons for the plethora of candidates emerging to challenge McGinn in next year's mayoral election. Seattle voters love their eccentrics...until they get elected and the consequences hit them.
