Intersection Safety Camera program
Helping to change dangerous driver behaviours at high-risk intersections across B.C.
Approximately 60 per cent of all crashes on B.C. roads occur at intersections.*
To help reduce the number of crashes at intersections, the police, the provincial government and ICBC operate the Intersection Safety Camera (ISC) program. There are 140 cameras in 26 communities across the province to deter drivers from running a red light. The cameras are placed at intersections based on the type, severity, and frequency of crashes at that location.
The goal of the ISC program is to prevent crashes and injuries and to save lives. Near each location, prominent signs warn approaching drivers about the enhanced intersection enforcement. With awareness, you can help reduce the risk of crashing.
*ICBC reported five year average from 2012-2016.
Some of the ISCs are being upgraded to identify and ticket the fastest drivers. Thirty-five of the existing cameras will be activated to enforce drivers travelling at unsafe speeds at these intersections on a red, yellow or green light.
ISC violation ticket
A ticket is issued only if there is clear evidence the vehicle ran a red light or entered an intersection well over the posted limit - on a red, yellow or green light. If you've received a ticket for running a red light or speeding through an intersection, find out how to pay or dispute the ticket.
The B.C. government will transfer 100 percent of net revenue from traffic violations to municipalities that are directly responsible for paying for policing. This provides municipalities additional funds to support community safety and address local policing priorities.
