Cons of Photo Radar Discussed at Public Debate

By Brian Schultz

Anti photo radar advocates will host a free public event today on why red light cameras and photo radar vans should be abolished in Manitoba.

Recently, the state of Georgia put an end to their photo enforcement program and found accidents decreased because of it. Organizers in Manitoba hope Georgia State Representative Barry D. Loudermilk can offer some insight to the success of his state’s decision on the cameras when he speaks to the crowed later this morning.

Wise Up Winnipeg is putting on the event and has invited the City of Winnipeg, the Province of Manitoba and red light camera operator, ACS, to the public debate on photo enforcement.

The event begins at 10 a.m. in the Provencher Ballroom at the Fort Garry Hotel.
