Automated “Speed Cameras” Are Being Implemented At These 35 BC Intersections

Heads up drivers! Starting this summer, the BC Government has announced speed cameras will be implemented at 35 intersections across the Lower Mainland.

The province will be installing new warning signs and activate technology to ticket the registered owners of vehicles entering these intersections well over the posted limit on a red, yellow or green light.

As a result, ignoring new, prominent warning signs and flying through one of British Columbia’s highest-risk intersections soon will lead to an automated speeding ticket.

This is a a road safety approach that has been “proven to cut speeds and tragic outcomes elsewhere”.

Between 2012 and 2016, Safety Camera (ISC) program sites in B.C. reported an average of 10,500 vehicles a year going at least 30 kilometres per hour over the posted speed limit. This was detected by red-light cameras, which also monitor vehicle speeds.

“We have a record number of crashes happening – more than 900 a day in our province – and about 60% of the crashes on our roads are at intersections,” said Mike Farnworth, Minister of Public Safety and Solicitor General.

To further discourage high speeds at these 35 locations, the provincial government and the police will not share the speed threshold that will trigger the new cameras.

The speed cameras will be located in the following intersections:
