Red light cameras are no longer only watching for impatient drivers looking to shave a few seconds of their commute.
Starting this summer, the B.C. government plans to activate automated speed enforcement on the cameras at certain intersections around the province.
The B.C. NDP studied the speed and crash data from 140 intersections currently equipped with red light cameras.
Over a four year period, the data showed an average of 10,500 vehicles per year driving at least 30 km/h over the speed limit.
Out of all the equipped intersections, officials identified the top 35 most likely to benefit from the automated system.
The speed cameras will be located in the following areas:
- Route 11 at Lonzo Road
