The number of people who have been caught speeding by photo or laser radar and automated enforcement has been on the decline for the last few years.

In 2018, 378,619 tickets were handed out by photo and laser radar, down from 458,508 tickets handed out in 2017 and 522,780 in 2016.

While tickets from photo and laser radars are down, tickets from intersection cameras are up. In 2018, 15,523 tickets were issued for drivers running red lights, up from 13,793 in 2017. The city also issued 138,298 tickets for speeding caught by intersection cameras in 2018, up from 133,659 in 2017.

The city said revenue from speed enforcement does not go into general revenue; instead, it’s spent on traffic safety programs. The Edmonton Police Service received $22 million from automated enforcement in 2018.
