Speeding is a major problem on the streets of Calgary, according to statistical analysis, collision data and citizen complaints. “These drivers not only put themselves at risk, they also endanger the lives of others, ”the Calgary Police Service said in a press release.
In addition to the photo radar, there are 58 intersection security camera locations across the city. These cameras can photograph vehicles entering an intersection through all stages of a traffic light, including red lights.
Over speeding vehicles passing through green and yellow traffic lights indicate what the speed limit you are driving. If you go 50 km / h or more over the limit, you will end up in front of a judge.
“These cameras continue to reduce collisions and create a safer driving environment at our intersections,” said the Calgary Police Service.
