While no final decision has been made on whether photo radar is here to stay in Saskatoon, discussion is already underway on expanding the program.
A city report at Monday’s transportation committee revealed the City of Saskatoon and the province have had preliminary discussions about the potential of expanded photo radar.
The mention of additional photo radar cameras was raised by City Park resident Raj Randhawa as a potential solution to combat speeding along Spadina Crescent.
In Saskatoon, two cameras have rotated through five locations along Circle Drive and five school zones.
Adding more cameras would require legislative approval, according the city.
The photo radar pilot was introduced in 2015 at a cost of $4.5 million to help reduce the number of speed-related crashes.
The pilot was scheduled to wrap up over a year ago, but its future is still being evaluated by SGI.
