Evaluation of the Winnipeg Photo Enforcement Safety Program

 

Established in 2003, the Photo Enforcement Safety Program is designed to increase intersection safety in Winnipeg, Manitoba by photographing red-light runners and speeders at several of the city’s intersections. The program currently involves the use of cameras at 48 intersections and is further expanded with the assistance of 10 mobile speed enforcement vehicles. As part of an evaluation on this program, TIRF will perform a controlled study evaluating the impact of photo enforcement on speed and red light violations in the municipality, including the analysis of annual statistics and yearly trends in collisions and traffic injuries. This evaluation will also include data from a public opinion poll among the residents of Winnipeg and in-depth interviews with key staff of the Winnipeg Police Service.
