VICTORIA, B.C. — B.C.’s 30 photo radar vans are parked, and the 80 police officers that operated them are tackling new projects today, after the controversial ticketing system was officially killed.

The announcement by newly elected premier, Gordon Campbell, came yesterday during a televised cabinet meeting.

“I think people in British Columbia are going to be pleased to see the end of photo radar and I hope they will pay off their tickets so we can get it behind us,” Campbell told reporters following the announcement.
