Al­berta to re­view use of photo radar

Cape Breton Post - - Canada -

ED­MON­TON — The Al­berta gov­ern­ment is re­view­ing photo radar across the prov­ince to make sure it’s tar­get­ing safety and not be­ing used as a cash cow. Trans­porta­tion Min­is­ter Brian Ma­son says he wants to see jus­ti­fi­ca­tion for why photo radar is used in cer­tain spots. And he says they will be re­view­ing rev­enue fig­ures to see how much money is be­ing re­ceived by mu­nic­i­pal­i­ties and other stake­hold­ers. Ma­son says the gov­ern­ment is re­act­ing to what he sees as a grow­ing per­cep­tion that photo radar is be­ing used not to make roads safer, but to make money. Ma­son says he hopes to have the re­view done by the fall and says pub­lic con­sul­ta­tion, rule changes, or leg­is­la­tion may fol­low de­pend­ing on what they find.
