All sites are selected in accordance with the Guideline, in relation to high collision corridors, playground zones, construction zones, or a history of speeding. All automated enforcement locations are assessed, using the location selection criteria provided by the Province, including requiring the rationale and data to be documented on a new standardized location selection form.
Mobile speed enforcement locations are updated every Thursday for the locations planned for the following calendar week. The locations may vary as determined by weather, road conditions, roadway closures or construction, equipment issues or other unforeseen circumstances.
To make sure the program achieves its safety goals and ensure that it is not used for revenue generation, automated enforcement is strictly prohibited in the following areas:
- Speed transition zones
- Residential roads with speed limit of less than 50km/h apart from playground zones
Alberta’s new Automated Traffic Enforcement Technology Guideline was released on December 1, 2021, and the City is pleased to see that it firmly establishes automated enforcement as a critical tool for street safety.
