Red-light cameras in Kelowna will be used to catch speeders at 2 intersections starting this summer

Red-light cameras at two Kelowna intersections will take pictures of speeding vehicles and send their owners an automated ticket from the summer.

The two intersections – Harvey Avenue and Cooper Road and Hwy 97 North at Banks Road – are among 35 the B.C. government has identified as having the greatest potential for safety gains.

New warning signs will be installed to notify drivers, but the speed at which the cameras are triggered will not be revealed.

The tickets will go to the registered owners of the cars.

The government only explained that drivers speeding “well over” the limit through a green, yellow or red light will be ticketed.

But between 2012 and 2016, red-light cameras in the province detected an average of 10,500 vehicles going at least 30km/h faster than the speed limit, which could be some indication of how many tickets will be issued.

Harvey and Cooper recorded an average of 74 crashes a year between 2013–2017, with an average of 36 resulting in injuries.

For Hwy 97 N and Banks, there was an average of 77 crashes a year, with 34 of them resulting in injuries.

Harvey and Spall – which was not selected to catch speeders – had an average of 110 crashes, 49 of which resulted in injuries.

"We have a record number of crashes happening – more than 900 a day in our province – and about 60% of the crashes on our roads are at intersections," said Mike Farnworth, minister of public safety and solicitor general.

"We've taken time to systematically pinpoint the locations linked to crashes and dangerous speeds that are best suited to safely catching, ticketing and changing the behaviours of those who cause carnage on B.C. roads."
