The Ministry of Public Safety and Solicitor General is increasing, by four times, from six hours a day to 24 hours a day, the operating capacity for red-light cameras installed at 140 high-crash intersections throughout B.C.
All of those cameras began operating full-time as of last month.
Five of those cameras are in Pitt Meadows and Maple Ridge, all of them along Lougheed Highway.
Turning on the red-light cameras full-time is an interim step the ministry is taking to reduce the number of collisions. Sometime this fall, some of those cameras also will be ticketing drivers who are speeding through intersections.
