Red Deer RCMP announces photo radar locations for February

Mobile units will be rotated through 14 city neighbourhoods

The Red Deer RCMP is cautioning drivers to slow down to avoid photo radar tickets in 14 city neighbourhoods in February.

Mobile photo radar units will be rotating around the city next month. They will operate in Oriole Park, Johnstone, Kentwood, Fairview, West Park, Grandview, Mountview, Sunnybrook, South Hill, Deer Park, Rosedale, Eastview, Clearview and Timberlands.

Mobile units will also be parked along Gaetz Avenue, 49th Avenue, Highway 11A, Highway 2A, 39th Street, 67th Street, Burnt Park Drive and Edgar Industrial Drive.

Intersection safety cameras that allow police to ticket motorists who run red lights or speed through yellow lights will be installed at 50th Avenue and 32nd Street, 50th Avenue and 76th Street, 49th Avenue and 49th Street, and 30th Avenue and 50th Street.

The RCMP states that these measures, along with conventional traffic enforcement and educational campaigns, help make Red Deer’s roads safer, reducing the number and severity of collisions.

Automated traffic enforcement devices are used in areas where speeding has been identified as a community concern, there has been a documented history of collisions, there is a high volume of pedestrians, and where conventional enforcement is ineffective or unsafe.

The RCMP says it can change these site locations without notice.
