Photo Radar

The Town of Coaldale conducts photo radar to enforce speeding violations under the direction of the Coaldale RCMP detachment. Traffic safety is of high importance for Coaldale as it enhances public safety within the community.

The Town targets high-risk areas for photo radar. Photo radar sites are based on the following criteria:

  • areas with a higher frequency of collisions;
  • areas with a higher frequency of speeding;
  • areas with a higher frequency of intersection contraventions (ie., failing to stop at a red light or stop sign) and
  • designated zones (school zones/playground zones).

Permanent signs are posted on primary access roads entering Coaldale to alert the public that photo radar is used as a speed enforcement tool.

TrafficCalm System

The Town of Coaldale's TrafficCalm System consists in speed signs that have been placed, on a rotational basis, throughout the Town to enhance public safety on Town roads and streets by encouraging drivers to voluntarily reduce their speed. These interactive signs show motorists if they are speeding or following the posted speed limit. The signs collect daily data allowing for further research and analysis. The signs are not automated traffic enforcement (photo radar) signs.

If you have any further questions or feedback regarding these signs please call 1-844-645-2635.
