Red Light Cameras

/ 97.3 The Eagle
              The province has announced plans to upgrade red light cameras at some of B-C’s most crash-prone intersections to also target high-speed drivers. The government says in a release that an average of 84 crashes happen each year at sites where Intersection Safety Cameras are located — with more than 10-thousand drivers going at least 30 kilometres an hour above the speed limit. It says red light cameras will be upgraded at the intersections with the highest number of speed-related accidents so they can also identify and ticket the fastest vehicles. The province says new signs will warn drivers of the change once the intersections are chosen in the coming months — which is more transparent than the old photo radar program that used unmarked vans in random locations.
