Public safety is about creating a secure, just and resilient British Columbia.
Most crashes in British Columbia happen at intersections. To reduce injuries and save lives, B.C. installs intersection safety cameras—sometimes called red light cameras—at intersections where crashes occur frequently.
In B.C., there is no waiting period to report someone missing and anyone can make a report. You do not need to be a member of the missing person’s immediate family.
