Locations

Select a region from the left menu to know the location of photo radar devices and red light cameras.

Note that the photo radar devices and red light cameras used in school zones and construction zones are not indicated on the map.

Go to the Québec 511 website to consult the list of road construction sites where photo radar devices could be installed.

Location selection criteria

First, the partner Cities and the Ministère identify sites where the use of photo radar devices or red light cameras would be appropriate. Then, a committee of experts made up of representatives of the ministère des Transports, ministère de la Sécurité publique, and Sûreté du Québec and, when they are concerned, the city authorities (transport and police services), selects the locations based on specific criteria such as:

  • Accidents due to speeding or red light violations
  • Geometric characteristics of the site
  • Possibility to install a device at that location
  • Difficulty for the police to control traffic

The sites selected are suggested to the Minister of Transport, Sustainable Mobility and Transport Electrification and the Minister of Public Security who determine by ministerial order the public roads where the devices could be used. Since June 6, 2012, photo radar devices and red light cameras can be used:

  • On any public road as determined by the Minister of Transport, Sustainable Mobility and Transport Electrification and the Minister of Public Security, after consulting with the municipality responsible for the maintenance of the road. When considering a location, the Ministers may take into account the accident potential of the road.
  • In school zones, as defined by regulation of the Minister of Transport, Sustainable Mobility and Transport Electrification
  • In a road construction site.
