New locations include Highway 17 at Ravine Way in Victoria, with four-way views of a busy shopping area around Uptown mall.

Highway cameras have also been added at Whiskers Point on Highway 97 north of Prince George, Highway 27 on the way to Fort St. James, and at Nadina Ave. in Houston on Highway 16.
