Red Light Cameras
About the Project
As "intersections/ red light running" is an emphasis area identified in Kingston's Road Safety Plan, council will soon be considering the installation of red light cameras, a safety measure to address red light running.
Red light cameras have been operating in Ontario for almost 20 years. Eight municipalities in the province currently have red light cameras. Red-light cameras have been proven to improve the level of safety at intersections for all road users.
A staff report specific to red-light cameras will be presented to council for consideration later this year, at which time; council will have the opportunity to decide whether or not to move forward with implementing this automated enforcement program.
Since the background work required to implement the program could take up to two years, if Council approves the program, red light cameras could be operational in the City by 2022.
Residents are invited to ask City staff their questions and provide their input about the red light camera program through Get Involved Kingston from Sept. 18 to Oct. 11.
