The Canadian Taxpayers Federation (CTF) and Wise-Up Winnipeg today urged motorists not to pay photo radar speeding tickets issued in the vicinity of Grant Avenue and Nathaniel Street.
The two groups believe tickets were issued wrongly at that location by a photo radar vehicle, and are urging motorists who received speeding tickets there to contact them. Recipients are also urged to call the number on the ticket to register to challenge it in court.
The CTF and Wise-Up Winnipeg have heard from over 100 Winnipeggers who received tickets at this location since the end of October. Each has questioned how they could be going 65-85 kilometres per hour after just having turned onto Grant Avenue westbound at Nathaniel Street.
Unlike other locations enforced by mobile photo radar, the photo radar vehicle situating at Grant and Nathaniel parks on a parallel service road and measures motorists’ speeds from 46 feet away. That may be the cause of the alleged wrongful speeding tickets.
Wise-Up Winnipeg will have a radar expert attest to the unreliability of mobile photo enforcement reflections at the time of trial of one of these many contested speeding tickets.
Taxpayers who have received tickets at the Grant and Nathaniel location are encouraged to contact either:
