Traffic Cams in Calgary
When crazy weather hits Calgary, it’s always nice to know what’s going on with traffic. You’ve probably Googled “Traffic Cams in Calgary” before right? They’re easy to find, but you need to click on each individual camera to see it’s image. Cumbersome. There really wasn’t a full page of traffic cams in Calgary, so I made one. It’s helpful if you want to just scan all of them to see what’s going on. Scroll away!
Always carry an emergency kit in your vehicle. Especially in the winter!
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 City of Calgary. You can find the page of them, and more information here: http://trafficcam.calgary.ca
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!
