Regional Council approved the use of Red Light Cameras at these 10 signalized intersections throughout Niagara. Red Light Cameras have a proven history of improving intersection safety through a reduction in the frequency and severity of collisions. They are particularly effective in reducing right-angle collisions, which more commonly result in injuries, fatalities, and high societal costs.

The Red Light Camera program is an important component of the Region’s Vision Zero initiative which is focused on the reduction and eventual elimination of serious injuries and fatalities on the Regional road network. Learn more about Vision Zero in Niagara.
