The City of Regina is restarting its Red Light Safety Program.
In October, 980 CJME reported that despite warning signs still posted on the roads, none of Regina’s four red light cameras had been working since 2016.
The city has since updated the red light cameras with digital technology and turned them on again on Saturday with a 60-day grace period.
Drivers who run a red light will receive a warning letter in the mail. Starting February 1, they will be ticketed $230 for the traffic violation.
The city said the cameras are located at the same high-risk intersections as before in hopes of reducing high-impact collisions. Those intersections include Albert Street and Saskatchewan Drive, Albert Street and Parliament Avenue, and Lewvan Drive and Dewdney Avenue.
No revenue has been made since the last ticket was issued in 2016. In a 2014 report to City Council, it was estimated the old system collected an annual average of $300,000 from its red light cameras.
