The city of Regina is upgrading its red light camera system. The cost of the upgrade is 800-thousand dollars.
The upgrade, which will see the system become more modern with digital cameras and photos being used, will see cameras placed at 4 intersections where there is high traffic.
The city’s Norman Kyle says all locations will have cameras, which wasn’t the case before.
“When we evaluated the proposals, the cost for having four cameras in place instead of two rotating, was not that very different,” says Kyle. “Instead of having someone move the cameras all the time, it would be just as easy to have them in place.”
Kyle says the upgrades should be done this summer with the hope being they can be completed before July 1.
