    Default Cops Everywhere

    Hey I don't know if we're allowed to do this, but I just wanted to give warning about radar traps.

    It seems every night around 12:00 or 1:00 there's a cop sitting in the entrance to Heritage Park catching people going Southbound on 14th Street.

    Watch out for those bastards okay?

    Yeah, that intersection of Heritage and 14th can be pretty bad, seen quite a few people run the red light (even with the red light camera up there now!) and seen several people (including some friends) get pulled over by the police on the same spot.

    Radar trap warnings are announced on the radio all the time.

    They should put those warning lights up there. The ones that tell you when the light is going to change. Makes it much easier to stop.

    They should have the warning lights on all red light camera intersections so they only catch the people who run reds on purpose...

    Default That is true

    That is true, I hate the feeling when you aren't sure if the stupid light is going to change or not.

    I hate the red light camera on Northbound Crowchild up by McMahon Stadium.

    Watch the cross walk light. When it starts flashing you know its going to change pretty soon.

    I agree that Crowchild one near mcmahon is annoying because its a really short light..

    Some of them are super fun like the 14th and heritage one, the light starts flashing, then goes back to walk, then flashes again, and you never know whether its the first cycle or the second. Thats my least favorite light...

    Yeah that light is only like that because half the time late at night there is no one that is waiting to turn or go straight into heritage park

    Here's some useful sites (also like someone said, it's both on radio and on TV on channel 10 every once in a while)

    Depends what is meant by term "successfull". In generating revenue...yes. In reducing red light offenses....of course not.

    As long as we're giving out cop hideouts, here's the ones in my neighborhood:

    Traffic Stops:
    Beddington Blvd - Eastbound - pass Center St, right after the church

    Beddington Tr - Eastbound to Deerfoot Tr - after Center St turn off, there's a band before the lights.

    Center St N - Northbound or Southbound - South of Mcknight by golf course

    Center St N - Northbound or Southbound - before/after Lions Gate bridge

    14St N - Southbound - South of Beddington exit, by entrance of new reservoir.

    14St N - Southbound - South of John Laurie going downhill.

    John Laurie Blvd - Eastbound - exit before 14th St.

    John Laurie Blvd - Wesbound - between 14th St. and Shagganappi, there are 2 dipps

    Shagganappi - Northbound - after John Laurie, at top of Nose hill park entrance or light poll by 1st band.


    Photo Radar:
    4th St. N - Southbound - After John Laurie by 30th Ave

    14th St N - Northbound - Right across golf course

    14th St N - Southbound - right before golf course by apartment units or behind bus shelter right before 20th Ave

    Memorial Drive - Westbound - between center St and 10th St.

    Deerfoot Tr - Everywhere - slow down when you see either a MiniVan or Truck with tinted windows parked on the curb.


    Gotcha:

    Unmarked black neon in downtown core catching stop sign/red light runners.


    And yes, sadly I'm a proud sponsor of the Calgary Police Department.
