Say Goodbye to Right On Red at These 10 Seattle Intersections

According to the Seattle Department of Transportation there have been over 140 collisions between turning cars and pedestrians at intersections in the past three years. As part of Seattle's Vision Zero plan, which aims to eliminate the number of such accidents altogether by 2030, the city is eliminating right turns on red lights at ten critical downtown Seattle intersections by the end of the year. All of the chosen intersections are along Fifth, Sixth and Seventh Avenue and all are potential hotspots for accidents. Drivers who violate the law will be facing a $136 fine, with those who are involved in collisions looking at a much higher fine. We've mapped out the ten intersections below. If you know you drive them often, start making a mental note now before it costs you in the near future. Meanwhile, both drivers and pedestrians can expect to see walk sign changes and the elimination of dual turn lanes around Seattle soon as well.
