WINNIPEG, Man. — Manitoba may be the latest province to jump on board the photo radar bandwagon, after a recent study indicates 71 per cent of Manitobans favor the idea.

The study, which polled 2,000 residents, is part of a provincial government report that recommends the use of photo radar in Manitoba.

“Manitobans appear to support photo enforcement in at least some circumstances,” says the report, obtained by a Winnipeg newspaper.

The report also recommends that all proceeds expected to be millions of dollars annually should go toward road safety improvements rather than general revenue coffers.

The report indicates that the Brandon police, Winnipeg police and RCMP have all jumped on-board, supporting photo radar.
