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

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

Speeding is one of the main concerns on Calgary roadways, identified by statistical analysis and collision data as well as citizen concerns. “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 February, photo radar will also be used to enforce speeds in the following neighbourhoods:

  • Abbeydale
  • Albert Park/Radisson Heights
  • Beddington
  • Braeside
  • Bridgeland/Riverside
  • Chaparral
  • Cityscape
  • Coral Springs
  • Coventry Hills
  • Greenwood/Greenbriar
  • Hillhurst
  • Huntington Hills
  • Lake Bonavista
  • Maple Ridge
  • Panorama
  • Parkhill
  • Patterson
  • Renfrew
  • Riverbend
  • Rocky Ridge
  • Royal Oak
  • Shawnessy
  • Sherwood
  • Skyview Ranch
  • Southbend Business Park
  • Southwood
  • Sundance
  • Tuscany
  • Upper Mount Royal
  • Valley Ridge

In addition to photo radar, there are 58 Intersection Safety Camera (ISC) 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.¬†
