Niagara Region is starting a Red Light Camera program beginning late January.
In Grimsby, the Red Light camera is being installed and tested at Christie Street (Regional Road 12) and South Service Road (Regional Road 40).
Red light cameras detect and capture images of vehicles entering an intersection when the traffic signal is red, and tickets will be issued to drivers who run red lights beginning late January.
These cameras have proven to be an effective tool to improve road safety, as they help reduce severe collision types such as angle and head-on collisions at signalized intersections.
For further inquiries, please contact the Niagara Region at 905-980-6000 or Toll-free: 1-800-263-7215.
