In response to community needs identified through statistical analysis, collisions, and citizen concerns, mobile photo radar will be set up on Crowchild Trail, Glenmore Trail, Deerfoot Trail, Macleod Trail, Sarcee Trail, and Stoney Trail. With the warmer weather, there will be a renewed focus on seasonal construction zones.
Photo radar will be focusing on the communities Acadia, Applewood Park, Aspen Woods, Beddington, Bowness, Canyon Meadows, Cranston, East Fairview Industrial, Edgemont, Fairview, Haysboro Industrial, Highwood, Huntington Hills, Kingsland, Mayland Heights, McKenzie Towne, Montgomery, Parkdale, Penbrook Meadows, Pineridge, Renfrew, Scarboro, Shawnee Slopes, Shawnessy, Shepard, Silver Springs, Springbank Hill, Sunnyside, Temple, Thorncliffe, Tuscany, West Hillhurst, and Woodlands.
As well as photo radar, there are 51 Intersection Safety Camera (ISC) locations throughout the city. These cameras can photograph vehicles entering the intersections during all phases of the signal, including red light infractions.
These cameras continue to reduce collisions and foster a safer driving environment at our intersections.
The speed on green initiative uses up to 28 of these ISC locations to capture vehicles that speed through green and yellow lights. Speeding fines reflect how fast you are travelling over the limit. Speeds in excess of 50 km/hr over the speed limit result in an appearance before a judge.
These drivers not only put themselves in danger, but they also endanger the lives of others.
