Traffic Cams in Calgary
So I was watching various traffic cams and got tired of clicking on them all one-by-one, so I made my own page of them. Below are all of the traffic cams in Calgary, and the one camera in Chestermere.
Note: this blogpost was made wayyyy back when in 2014, so there are likely additional traffic cams in Calgary now. I’ll see about updating this in the future and improving the crap out of it! This was made to watch all of the roads during a blizzard, which was crazy. Like when this happens:
you want to be able to monitor stuff right? Right. Stay safe!
Get a dashcam
If you don’t already have one, you NEED to get a dashcam for your vehicle. Being able to record what you do while you’re driving around can be extremely helpful in determining fault for accidents, providing footage for court cases, or simply just for the “wtf!” factor in YouTube videos. Be your own traffic camera in Calgary! Check out what Amazon has, there’s lots to choose from. This one is highly rated and inexpensive:
As always make sure you review things before you buy them. Checking YouTube for reviews is a good idea!
Where to find these, and more?
All of these images are provided by and hosted by the Alberta Government. You can find the page of them, and more cameras in Alberta, here: http://511.alberta.ca/map.html.
The resolution of these traffic cameras, unfortunately, isn’t that great. It’s pretty amazing though, when you think about it, that we can just willy nilly look at various parts of the city – and even the province. 1000 years ago people couldn’t even make their own ice, and here we are drinking coffee and reading blogs and watching traffic cameras.
Kind of puts it into perspective, no? Anyway! on to the traffic cams in Calgary!
