ICBC has upgraded safety cameras at 35 high-risk intersections in BC to ticket speeding vehicles.
Marine Drive at Capilano has been identified as one such high-risk intersection where cameras have been upgraded to catch speeding drivers and to deter others from doing so.
An average of 99 crashes occur at this intersection every year.
ICBC currently operates 140 cameras in 26 communities across the province to deter drivers from running a red light, but only 35 cameras are being upgraded for speeding.
The goal of the upgrade, ICBC says, is to change dangerous behaviour at key intersections, where estimated 60 per cent of all crashes in BC occur. ICBC says ticket is issued only if there is clear evidence the vehicle ran a red light or entered an intersection well over the posted limit on a red, yellow or green light.
The BC government will transfer 100 per cent of net revenue from traffic violations to municipalities that are directly responsible for paying for policing.
While ICBC has upgraded cameras at just one location in North Vancouver, 12 locations in Vancouver will now have upgraded cameras.
These are Boundary Road at East 49th Avenue, East Hastings Street at Main Street, East Hastings Street at Renfrew Street, Grandview Highway at Rupert Street, Granville Street at West King Edward Avenue, Kingsway at Joyce, Kingsway at Victoria Drive, Knight Street at East 33rd Avenue, Oak Street at West 57th Avenue, Oak Street at West 70th Avenue, Southeast Marine Drive at Kerr, West Georgia Street at Cardero Street.
