The "drive safe" message on bright yellow background brings CPS photo radar vehicles in line with provincial legislation taking effect next month.
Calgary drivers will have more heads-up on photo radar in December.
Effective Thursday, Calgary Police Service photo radar vehicles will have high-visibility banners on them that say “drive safe.”
“A key element to the success of any enforcement practice, including the use of photo radar technology, is public awareness and transparency,” CPS said on social media.
The banners are in response to changes to automated traffic enforcement put into provincial law last December.
This year, municipalities started submitting quarterly reports to the province on photo radar.
In April, photo radar was prohibited on residential streets with speed limits under 50 km/h, unless it was in school and playground zones or construction zones. A new definition of a zone with speed transitions was also put in place.
In June, photo radar wasn’t allowed on construction sites if no workers were present. Photo radar sites also couldn’t be selected if there was public concern or conventional enforcement.
