CALGARY, Alta. — Calgary police raked in more than $11.6 million in photo radar tickets last year, but they say drivers are catching on.
Police say a decoy van is just as effective at slowing traffic down than the actual photo radar vans.
“It shows it’s working — people are starting to learn that it doesn’t pay to speed,” Sgt. Clive Marsh, told local media.
The number of tickets being handed out is declining, but the amount of revenue generated is increasing thanks to an increase in the fine amount. Police are continuing to use a decoy van to slow down traffic.
Meanwhile, city police say red light cameras have reduced collisions at intersections where they’ve been installed and have reduced fatalities by 100 per cent at those intersections.
