Will I get a ticket for running a yellow light?

You will not receive a ticket for running a yellow light. The traffic signal cameras activate when a vehicle enters the intersection after the light turns red. Entering the intersection before the light turns red is not a violation and will not trigger the camera. 

Every violation is reviewed by an Everett police offer. If a police officer determines that no violation occurred, a ticket will not be issued to that driver.
