"We decided that with a lot of these cameras, we wanted to be efficient with the investment that we made. As you know, that overpass on Highway 2 and the TransCanada Highway has been a problem for some vehicles that are moving through there and we looked at that as a prime location for the camera and of course, it provides citizens in the area with a good snap shot of what the weather conditions would be like."
