Mayor John Tory announced that the City’s Automated Speed Enforcement (ASE) program will begin issuing tickets to speeding drivers on Monday, July 6.
Automated Speed Enforcement aims to increase road safety, reduce speeding and raise public awareness about the need to slow down and obey posted speed limits.
There are 50 cameras installed city-wide on local, collector and arterial roads in Community Safety Zones near schools. Each ward has two ASE cameras that will capture and record images of vehicles travelling in excess of the posted speed limit. Signage is installed in advance of all ASE locations so that motorists are aware of their presence.
If a vehicle is detected travelling in excess of the posted speed limit in an ASE-enforced area, the registered owner of the vehicle will receive a ticket regardless of who was driving.
The total payable fine amount includes a set fine, which is determined by Schedule D under the Provincial Offences Act, a proportional victim fine surcharge and applicable court costs. Offenders are only fined – demerit points will not be applied.
An individual caught speeding between 1 and 19 km/h over the posted speed limit will receive a set fine of $5 per kilometre. If travelling between 20 and 29 km/h over the posted speed limit, the set fine will be $7.50 per kilometre. For anything between 30 and 49 km/h over the limit, the set fine will be $12 per kilometre.
