Facts about automated speed enforcement cameras
  • For each location, key factors assessed to select Intersection Safety Camera sites for speed enforcement included:
    • the prevalence and extremity of speeding;
    • the record of fatal and severe injury crashes; and
    • the potential to reduce collisions.
  • Project engineers examined technical considerations in detail to confirm the feasibility of each of the 35 sites.
  • The adoption of automated speed enforcement builds on a 2015 recommendation from the BC Coroners Service to pilot the approach.
  • B.C. police agencies issued 8% more tickets for excessive speeding in 2016-17 than in 2014-15.
  • In Canada, automated speed enforcement is used in the three western provinces and in Quebec. Recently, Toronto piloted it.
  • Evaluation of an automated speed enforcement pilot in Saskatchewan shows average vehicle speeds fell by up to 17% and speed-related casualty collisions by 63%, resulting in 51% fewer injuries.
  • In 2016, Quebec reported its program reduced average speeds at fixed installations by 13.3 kilometres per hour and reduced crashes by 15% to 42% at mobile and fixed speed sites.
