McGill Street between Nanaimo and Renfrew – this road leads to and from 2nd Narrows Bridge
Photo Radar Vans are setup in both eastbound and westbound directions along McGill Street, between Nanaimo and Renfrew streets. Residences line this street on both sides and consequently there are many civillian minivans parked there. Sometimes, you will see cones around the photo radar vans. This is a main street which offers access to the 2nd Narrows Bridge(which is very busy) and they love to nail people trying to get to work. I have found that the Valentine One(2000model year) will pick up the Vans one block ahead of you with a strong Ka band alert. On my 1998 model year uniden, it only goes off AFTER you’ve passed the van and generates a very weak Ka band reading(and it’s too late at that point).
