Intersection Safety Cameras

Automated traffic-enforcement technology is an important tool to enhance traffic safety. It helps move Edmonton towards zero fatalities and major injuries.

How it Works

Intersection Safety Cameras (ISCs) monitor intersections and photograph vehicles that speed or run through red lights.

The Office of Traffic Safety installs and manages ISCs in Edmonton. The Edmonton Police Service has been using ISCs to enforce traffic laws at intersections since November 2009.

What it Does

Intersection Safety Cameras:

  • Deter drivers from running red lights and speeding
  • Lower the number and severity of collisions
  • Improve the safety of Edmonton’s roads

Intersections are high-risk locations for collisions. Risky behaviour like speeding and running red lights has serious consequences including collisions, injuries, and death. These consequences are preventable.

How speed relates to deaths

Did you know?

In Edmonton in 2015:

  • There were 14,515 collisions in intersections
  • That is 56.9% of all collisions in Edmonton
  • 71.6% of injury-related collisions happened at intersections 
  • 18 people died in collisions at intersections

The direct cost of collisions in our region is estimated at $1 billion a year according to the Collision Cost Study done by CRISP.

Since 1999, the City has used cameras to photograph vehicles that run a red light. A 2006 study funded by the Edmonton Police Commission proved that these cameras cut collisions.
