Seattle drivers: Get ready to tap the brakes around more school zones. The city plans to install speed cameras at five more schools after early results indicate that the enforcement devices – and resulting $189 traffic tickets – are motivating drivers to slow down.
In December, the city rolled out the enforcement cameras at four schools. In those school zones, the cameras snap a photo of any vehicles that exceed the 20-mile-per-hour limit. Then the driver later gets a citation in the mail.
Following one of the worst school shootings in the country's history, what's already being done and what can be done to keep guns and violence out of classrooms? We talk with Mike Donlin of Washington state's School Safety Center. Then, we hear from former Seattle City Councilmember Tina Podlodowski about how Washington state could lead on gun control at the ballot box.
