Some of B.C’s new automated speed cameras go into effect today, Monday July 29th, including one South of the Fraser!
On Monday the Public Safety and Solicitor General announced they’ve upgraded five red-light cameras in the Lower Mainland to now start nabbing lead foots.
How it works is anyone caught going ” “well” above the speed limit (what that means hasn’t been said yet) through a red, amber or green light, doesn’t matter, will now be slapped with a hefty fine that will then be mailed out to the registered owner of that vehicle.
Here’s the locations of the five lights currently active:
- King George and 152nd Street – Surrey
- Kingsway and Boundary Road – Burnaby
- Kingsway and Victoria Drive – Burnaby
- King Edward Ave. and Granville St. – Vancouver
- Lougheed Highway and Dewdney Trunk Road – Maple Ridge
In a news release from the Public Safety and Solicitor General they say they expect to have dozens more red-light cameras upgraded by next spring, including a handful South of the Fraser! Check out the map below for specific locations (the crossings marked with a light grey speedometer are the ones that will be upgraded).
