Photo Radar Invalid in Empty Construction Zones — What About School Zones?

Photo Radar Invalid in Empty Construction Zones — What About School Zones?

Photo Radar

A judge recently ruled that photo radar speeding tickets can be thrown out if they were given in a construction zone when workers were not present. The ruling specifically states that workers must be present at the site for the ticket to be valid.

Winnipeg Mayor Sam Katz agrees with the decision.

“If there is no construction going on and there is no impact on citizens then photo radar should not implemented. Quite simply when the work is done, take down the signs; that’s my personal opinion on it,” said Katz.

The crown doesn’t agree with the ruling and is appealing it.

A few people have raised the issue in e-mails to ChrisD.ca about the legality of tickets given in school zones when classes aren’t in session. That opens up a whole other issue.

What do you think?
