Red light cameras are being installed at five new locations.

City council approved adding the new cameras to the following intersections in December of last year:

  • Twenty Road at Upper James Street;
  • Cannon Street at James Street;
  • Fennell Avenue at Upper James Street;
  • Wentworth Street at Wilson Street; and
  • Stone Church Road at Upper Gage Avenue.

The city’s red light camera program began in November 2000 with the intention of reducing right-angle, or T-bone, collisions at traffic signals, which are typically caused by drivers failing to obey the red light.

The city currently has 24 cameras in place. More than 14,000 tickets were sent to verified vehicle owners in 2016.
