RED DEER - Drivers are being told which Red Deer intersections they can expect to see "Speed on Green" cameras starting in July.
Red Deer City Council approved the implementation of automated intersection speed enforcement during their 2017 Operating Budget debates in January. The changes include the ability to ticket drivers for speeding through green lights at the intersections as well as the current ticketing program for drivers who run red lights.
The equipment will be operational on July 11 and will issue warnings to speeders for one month before beginning to issue tickets on August 11.
Currently, 10 traffic cameras operate in the city that can issue tickets for red light infractions. They operate in four locations at a time and rotate around the city every two weeks.
The same cameras will be used to record vehicles speeding through the intersection.
All intersections equipped for traffic cameras have signage at them indicating the presence of the equipment. The locations of the cameras for each two-week period are posted on the City of Red Deer website and shared with the media.
Vehicles speeding through these identified intersections will be photographed and the registered owner of the vehicle will be issued a ticket through the mail. These infractions follow the specified penalties as listed in the Alberta Traffic Safety Act and do not include demerit points.
Officials say the program is in keeping with The City of Red Deer and Red Deer RCMP’s commitment to creating safer roads and improving intersection safety.
The 10 Red Deer camera locations are:
32 St. – 30 Ave. eastbound
32 St. – 30 Ave. southbound
50 St. – 30 Ave. eastbound
50 St. – 30 Ave. northbound
49 St. – 49 Ave. northbound
76 St. – 50 Ave. northbound
59 St. – 50 Ave. southbound
32 St. – Taylor Drive southbound
67 St. – 50 Ave. northbound
