The City of Calgary has released the locations where photo radar will be in effect for the month of April.

Speeding is one of the main concerns on Calgary roadways, as identified by statistical analysis, collision data, and citizen grievances. “These drivers not only put themselves in danger, but they also endanger the lives of others,” said the Calgary Police Service in a news release.

This April, photo radar will be used to enforce speed limits in the following Calgary communities:

  • Beltline
  • Bridlewood
  • Citadel
  • Cranston
  • Diamond Cove
  • Douglasdale/Douglasglen
  • Falconridge
  • Forest Lawn
  • Glendale
  • Glengarry
  • Hamptons
  • Huntington Hills
  • Killarney
  • Kingsland
  • Mahogany
  • Marlborough
  • Marlborough Park
  • Marlborough/Forest Heights
  • Martindale
  • Montgomery
  • Ogden
  • Panorama
  • Pineridge
  • Queensland
  • Rundle
  • Shawnessy
  • Silverado
  • Southview
  • Strathcona
  • Sunnyside
  • Tuxedo
  • Wildwood

To address community needs, the City of Calgary has announced that mobile photo radar will also be set up on Crowchild Trail, Glenmore Trail, Deerfoot Trail, Macleod Trail, Sarcee Trail, and Stoney Trail.

In addition to photo radar, there are 58 Intersection Safety Camera locations throughout the city. These cameras can photograph vehicles entering an intersection through all phases of a traffic signal, including red lights. 

Speeding fines for vehicles going through green and yellow lights reflect how high over the speed limit you’re travelling. Going 50 km/hr or more over the limit will land you in front of a judge.

“These cameras continue to reduce collisions and foster a safer driving environment at our intersections,” said the Calgary Police Service.
