If you want to avoid a mobile photo-radar ticket, don’t go anywhere near Grant Avenue and Thurso Street.
You may also want to avoid driving during the afternoon rush hour anywhere in Winnipeg, particularly on Wednesdays.
A CBC News analysis of 22,737 mobile photo-radar tickets handed out over a four-month period in 2016 found the City of Winnipeg dinged more motorists for speeding on Grant at Thurso than at any other location in the city, more motorists on Wednesdays than on any other day of the week, and more drivers between 4 and 5 p.m. than during any other hour.

Geographically, Grant at?Thurso ? a stretch that runs alongside Grant Park Shopping Centre ? is the easiest place to get a ticket. A total of 2,916 motorists were nailed by mobile photo-radar equipment for driving faster than 50 kilometres an hour at this River Heights?intersection?from Jan. 1 to May 1, 2016.

“That one fools a lot of people, my family included. I believe my own wife got a ticket there,” Winnipeg police Chief Danny?Smyth?said Thursday.

“It’s [near] a school,?but Grant is one of those corridors that people tend to travel more like 60 along, so yeah, that one seems to catch a lot of people.”

River Heights-Fort Garry Coun. John Orlikow, whose ward includes the offending intersection, said the city needs to do something to mitigate the number of speeding tickets along this section of Grant Avenue.

“Maybe it’s increasing the speed limit. Maybe it’s more signage. Maybe it’s more engineering to the street,” Orlikow surmised Thursday.

Last June, he presented a motion that would require the city to flag the?top two?locations where violations occur each year. He said the goal is for Public Works and the police to?propose measures to reduce speeding and increase safety, rather than leaving the locations unaddressed, allowing them to continue generating?tickets.

In 2003, the public works department recommended increasing the speed along this stretch from 50 to 60 kilometres an hour. A study?found the natural speed for?most motorists was between 61 to 68?along the route and found the collision rate to be in line with other regional streets.

“Furthermore, it is expected that making these changes to the speed limit at these locations will … provide motorists travelling?along these routes with a more consistent driving environment in terms of uniformity in speed limits,” said the report’s author.

However, a motion rejecting the recommendation?by then-councillor for River Heights-Fort Garry Garth Steek was carried, effectively freezing the speed at 50.

But the 50-an-hour speed zone at Grant and?Thurso?actually is an?anomaly,?when it comes to places where mobile photo radar nabs?the most motorists.

The mobile photo radar data, obtained by?CBC?News after an 18-month freedom-of-information dispute, reveals most motorists are caught in?30 km/h zones.

Seven of the top 10 stretches of road where drivers were caught during the sample period?had 30 km/h speed limits, while a?total of 61 per cent of the tickets were generated?in 30 km/h zones.

Police Chief Smyth?said he’s not surprised. Provincial legislation gives police no choice but to direct their mobile photo radar contractors to set up their equipment around schools,?playgrounds or construction zones, he said.

“There’s a cynicism behind this program, because we’re limited to these areas,”?Smyth?said.?”People get upset about that, that it always seems to be those 30 kilometre?zones at?the schools.”

Smyth said the police would like to place mobile photo radar on?regional streets where conventional photo enforcement operations would endanger officers.

“I certainly would like to have greater flexibility to be able to deploy in some of these high-speed corridors,” Smyth said.

Distracted Driving

Distracted driving means any activity that diverts your attention from the road. Being distracted, even for just a few seconds, is all it can take to cause a fatal crash.
If you are caught, you will receive a three-day licence suspension for a first offence and a seven-day suspension for subsequent offences. Upon conviction, you will also receive a $672 fine and five demerits.

Dangerous Driving

The law interprets the term dangerous driving more broadly nowadays. Some of the circumstances where dangerous driving charges are commonly being laid may surprise you. A conviction for dangerous driving results in ten demerits and higher Autopac premiums. It also means a hefty fine, licence suspension and maybe even time in jail. Keep your eyes on the road and drive safely.

Speeding

A speeding violation of up to 49 km/h over the posted speed limit moves you down the DSR scale two levels. If you are travelling 50 km/h or more over the limit, the penalty is 10 levels.
The safer you drive, the higher you move on the scale and the more money you save. Your position on Manitoba’s 36-level Driver Safety Rating (DSR) scale depends on your driving record.
