The Mukilteo City Council voted to repeal the ordinance authorizing traffic-safety cameras in the city.
The vote Monday to take the law off the books reversed a previous decision for additional review.
More than 70 percent of voters approved an initiative in November restricting cameras, The Daily Herald of Everett reported. The council had been treating an initiative as an advisory.
The initiative was launched by Mukilteo resident Tim Eyman, who is promoting similar measures in other Washington cities with camera systems that automatically send tickets to drivers that are photographed running red lights or speeding. Eyman said the traffic cameras are more about fines than safety.

Lacey has red-light cameras at multiple intersections, and Olympia has discussed using them.
