Saskatoon Recieves 2 More Red-Light Cameras

For those of you who currently live in Saskatoon, you are well aware of the red light cameraon Circle Drive in the north end of the city.  This camera has generated more than just a few tickets but has also helped reduce accidents and bad driving through this area which previously was notorious for accidents.  In the first year alone the camera handed out more than $460,000 worth of tickets and cut people running the red light by 92 per cent. 

The city of Saskatoon has approved the installation of 2 more red-light cameras in the city.  The first camera will be installed on 8th street and Preston Avenue.  This intersection is a major one in the city of Saskatoon as it is the major go through road between College and 8th.  The second camera will be installed on 51st Street and Warman Road.  Both of these intersections have a history of people running red lights and as a result a lot of accidents happening.

With the city of Saskatoon growing, we will continue to see more additions of this.  As any city grow more strain is put on traffic and it seems that people drive a little bit more aggressive.  These cameras are planned to be installed by the end of the summer so be sure to take note and drive safe!
