Running a stop sign could cost you $87


Rolling through a stop sign while cycling on the Burke-Gilman Trail could cost you $87, the City of Kenmore warns.

In May, the city of Kenmore installed new stop signs at NE 175 Street and 61 Ave NE, making this intersection an “All Way Stop.” This  also includes the intersection of 61st Avene NE and the Burke Gilman Trail.

We received a notice from the city, warning cyclists that the Kenmore Police Department will start enforcing the stop signs at this intersection for all motorists and bicyclists.

According to King County Code 7.12.295, violating the established trail use regulations -- e.g. obeying all signs, speed limits, etc. -- will result in $87 penalty. 

​Cyclists, you've been warned.
