Radar detectors and laser detectors are illegal to use in Manitoba. The government of Manitoba is planning to extend the controversial photo radar and red light camera systems to highways and other municipalities throughout the province. The current legislation that allows for the cameras to be installed in Winnipeg also permits the devices to be used in other parts of the province.
