Statistical analysis, collision data, and citizen complaints show speeding is one of the main concerns on Calgary’s roadways.
Mobile photo radars will be set up on Crowchild Trail, Glenmore Trail, Deerfoot Trail, Macleod Trail, Sarcee Trail, and Stoney Trail to meet community needs.
For May, photo radar will also be used to enforce speed limits in the following 30 Calgary communities:
- Arbour Lake
- Aspen Woods
- Auburn Bay
- Cambrian Heights
- Coral Springs
- Country Hills
- Coventry Hills
- Erin Woods
- Harvest Hills
- Huntington Hills
- McKenzie Lake
- Skyview Ranch

Along with the photo radars, there are 58 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.
The speed-on-green initiative uses up to 55 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.
