Photo radar working, SGI says
Infractions down in many locations
Saskatchewan's expanded photo radar program is having a positive effect, according to SGI.
Additional cameras have been rotating through a number of locations for several months. Initially people caught speeding were sent warning letters.
That grace period ended a month ago and SGI, the Crown corporation overseeing the initiative, says the number of speeders recorded by the cameras has dropped.
"So far we are seeing a downward trend in the number of speeding violations at the high speed and school zone locations," Kelley Brinkworth, a spokeswoman for SGI, said Wednesday.
There are eight cameras in Saskatchewan which rotate through 28 different sites, all of which are marked by signs.
"We're not being sneaky about it. We're telling you where to expect a camera," Brinkworth said. "We want people to know where the photo speeding enforcement cameras are, because we want people to slow down."
The number of speeding violations for March is expected to be available next week.
