December 5, 2023 – In a significant move towards enhancing road safety, Mayor Patrick Brown’s recently unveiled 2024 Brampton budget includes funding for 150 Automated Speed Enforcement (ASE) cameras across Brampton.

Prominently located on page 5 of the 680 page Brampton Budget document, Mayor Brown highlights, “We continue to make investments in safety and security. To aid in solving crime, we will be adding 50 high-resolution cameras at key intersections, as well as 150 automated speed enforcement cameras.”

Automated Speed Enforcement (ASE) employs advanced technology, utilizing cameras and speed measurement devices to enforce speed limits and ensure safer roads for all users. The system works in conjunction with existing safety measures, including traffic calming, community safety zones, speed display boards, educational initiatives, and police enforcement.

With a focus on increasing speed compliance, altering driver behavior, and raising public awareness about the importance of adhering to speed limits, ASE utilizes advanced technology to enforce safe driving practices. The system captures images of vehicles exceeding speed limits in school zones and community safety zones, issuing fines to registered plate holders without applying demerit points.

The fines for speeding in Community Safety Zones are as follows:

  • 1 to 19 km over the limit: $5.00 per kilometer plus costs
  • 20 to 29 km over the limit: $7.50 per kilometer plus costs
  • 30 to 49 km over the limit: $12.00 per kilometer plus costs

The City of Brampton, a pioneer in Ontario in regards to ASE, introduced its first notifications signs in December 2019, with the deployment in September 2020. ASE are strategically placed in community safety zones and on roadways posted at less than 80 km per hour, focusing on protecting vulnerable populations.

City Council approved the implementation of ASE throughout 200 locations annually on July 8, 2020. To further raise awareness, signage was installed at entry points into the city, notifying motorists of ASE enforcement and emphasizing a zero-tolerance approach to speeding in the community.
