Toronto is Getting 25 New Speed Cameras, Here’s Where They Are
Thanks to a new fleet of speed cameras the city is rolling out, Toronto drivers will soon have 25 more ways to get caught with one ticket.
Toronto Mayor John Tory announced Thursday that 25 Automated Speed Enforcement (ASE) cameras, one going into each borough, will be deployed as part of the city’s Vision Zero Road Safety Plan. These are in addition to the 50 already implemented cameras spread around the city.
“We now have 75 speed cameras across the city and I remain committed to installing a total of 150 cameras this semester,” Tory said. “Expanding the Automated Speed Enforcement program is a major step forward in making our neighborhoods safer for everyone in Toronto and an effort that demonstrates our continued commitment to advancing Toronto’s Vision Zero Road Safety Plan. “
It will take approximately two weeks for the new cameras to be fully activated and begin sending out tickets.
According to the city, traffic-related deaths and serious injuries have decreased since the Vision Zero program began, which also includes initiatives like installing speed bumps, establishing school safety zones and adding pedestrian crossings to 1,000 intersections. and the installation of more red light cameras.
The 50 existing ASE cameras are in their sixth round of deployments and are expected to continue to be deployed in various areas of Toronto. In December, they issued a total of 21,362 tickets to drivers, including 1,558 repeat offenders, one of whom received 10 tickets on Fenn Avenue alone. Although tickets from ASE cameras do not result in minus points, drivers have to pay a fine.
