The provincial government has announced that eight intersection safety cameras (ISC) are expected to be activated this month.

Hope Latham, Public Affairs Officer with the Ministry of Public Safety, says they’ll be located in Coquitlam, Delta, Langley, and Surrey, and they are scheduled to go live on February 24.

The provincial government’s ISC program was first announced in May 2019. Thirty-five intersections across the Lower Mainland were to be installed with warning signs and technology that would ticket anyone driving over the speed limit, whether it be a red, yellow, or green light.

Twenty of the cameras have already begun operation and are strategically placed at what the government labels high-risk intersections, such as Kingsway at Royal Oak Avenue, or 152 Street at King George Boulevard.

The exact locations of the cameras that will be activated this month are as follows:

Coquitlam

  • Barnet at Mariner Way

Port Coquitlam

  • Lougheed Highway at Shaughnessy Street

Delta

  • Nordel Way at 84 Ave

Langley

  • 200 St at 64 Ave

Surrey 

  • 64 Ave at 152 St
  • 128 St at 88 Ave
  • King George Blvd at 104 Ave
  • 152 St at 96 Ave

Between October and December of 2019, the provincial government issued 20,907 red light tickets: 7,353 speeding tickets were given, the highest being a vehicle going 154 km/h in an 80 km/h zone.
