The provincial government wants to know if you think photo radar would be effective in reducing speed and crashes on British Columbia's roads. But its only motivation for asking that question is curiosity. In an email sent to Public Eye, a public safety and solicitor general spokesperson stated, "There is no discussion within the ministry to bring back photo radar and government is not considering bringing back photo radar." In fact, according to the spokesperson, that question was just part of an annual effort to "survey to gain drivers' input into the seriousness of risk factors, driving behaviours, and effectiveness of traffic enforcement interventions."
