LETHBRIDGE: After a request for assistance from the town of Taber, Lethbridge Regional Police will begin setting up photo radar there within the next few months.
The town needs help dealing with an increase in speeding along Highway 3 as it passes through the community.
In addition to the photo radar equipment, Regional Police will also provide the van and an operator. They will also handle the billing or ticketing, a task Regional Police Chief Tom McKenzie noted can be a lot for a smaller community.
In return Taber will be charged a $20 processing fee for each ticket issued. Those funds will allow for increased photo radar operation in Lethbridge and Coaldale.
While Chief McKenzie couldn't provide an exact date for when photo radar will go into Taber, he did comment that the partnership is expected to go into effect within the next few months.
