We are a dedicated group of citizen activists who are working towards exposing and solving Winnipeg’s unsafe traffic engineering and subsequent unfair enforcement tactics. Our goals are too see proper and safe traffic engineering practices and to have enforcement used fairly for the real violators. Through many of the changes we are advocating for, there will be safer streets not just for drivers, but for all road users including pedestrians and cyclists.
WiseUpWinnipeg has exposed the issue of improper signing in Manitoba construction zones. All tickets issued from improperly signed construction zones must be dismissed. Click here to see press release and here to see provincial signing standards that are not being followed.
Wise Up Winnipeg has recently been mentioned on the new W5 piece about unfair traffic tickets. Click here to see a full explanation of the signing problems found at McPhillips and Inkster (the intersection used by W5)

The City of Winnipeg is engaged in a deliberate and dangerous campaign to induce photo-enforcement violations and siphon your hard earned $$$
WiseUpWinnipeg has uncovered devious and predatory tactics intended to reduce your driving awareness and increase violations. It’s supposed to be about SAFETY! The City of Winnipeg photo enforcement program is required by provincial Conditions of Authority to reduce collisions and injuries by deterring red light running and excessive speeding. But….contrary to City of Winnipeg claims of achieving that primary goal, MPIC data reveals that photo-enforcement has dramatically INCREASED collisions.
Adjusting amber lights “would ruin the photo-enforcement program.”
-WPS Traffic Sgt. Jon Butcher. Mr. Butcher is now VP of ACS Canada.
It’s time to end this abuse of power! It’s time to ACT! WiseUpWinnipeg is Taking it to the Streets!
What are we advocating for?
Simply this…make amber light times adequate for the intersection. Sign roads properly and stop enforcement-targeting of stretches that are not. Maintain the photo-enforcement program for true red light runners and speeders.
What is our mission?
To publicly expose the deception within the photo enforcement program and to draw attention to Winnipeg’s traffic infrastructure inadequacies (including amber times, speed limits and signage) that are being deliberately exploited by the program to generate maximum “violations” from otherwise safe driving behaviours.
Join us by standing up and telling our elected officials that we will no longer tolerate the deception and abuse! Demand that this illicit program be suspended immediately and that legitimate safety improvements be implemented!
Your voice can be heard, your actions will make a difference.
