    Is photo radar used in WA?

    I'm currently in Hamburg Germany on business, and saw *4* different photo radar flashes on one 2 mile stretch of road while going to dinner a couple of days ago. Nasty things.

    I've heard that photo radar's being tested in some cities in WA a while ago. Would have heard more about it by now, locally, if it's actually implemented.

    Photo radar has been in use in Oregon for several years. They don't use it in Washington?

    I've only seen it on side streets, never on the highways-- maybe that's the change?

    There are only a handfull of cities in Oregon Authorized by the Legislature to use kodak cops.

    "810.438 Photo radar authorized. (1) The following jurisdictions may, at their own cost, operate photo radar:

    (a) Albany.

    (b) Beaverton.

    (c) Bend.

    (d) Eugene.

    (e) Medford.

    (f) Portland.

    (g) Tigard.

    (2) A photo radar system operated under this section:

    (a) May be used on streets in residential areas or school zones.

    (b) May be used in other areas if the governing body of the city makes a finding that speeding has had a negative impact on traffic safety in those areas.

    (c) May not be used for more than four hours per day in any one location.

    (d) May not be used on controlled access highways.

    (e) May not be used unless a sign is posted announcing that photo radar is in use. The sign must be on the street on which the photo radar unit is being used and must be no closer than 100 yards and no farther than 400 yards from the location of the unit. [1995 c.579 §1; 1997 c.280 §1; 1999 c.1071 §1]

    PS LOOK FOR OREGON SPEED LIMIT INCREASE SOON TO 70 ON 1-5 AND 1-84! FINALLY!!!
