It’s a matter of seconds, inches

Everyone who goes to Lynnwood is a prime target for the red light cameras and you will get caught if you don’t pay attention. The yellow light is only three seconds long, and if you’re going to slow in your turn, the light will change to red before you can get out of the intersection.

Another thing to keep in mind: Even though you completely stop before turning right on a red light, if your bumper is over the big, white stop stripe, as far as the camera is concerned you didn’t stop.
