Public Comment on School Speed Zone Enforcement 

September 23, 2019 


The City of Toronto has installed 10 pilot Automated Speed Enforcement (ASE) cameras and is ready to install 50 more under the City’s Vision Zero 2.0 pedestrian safety plan. These cameras have been operating on a pilot basis for data collection only and have not involved the issuance of tickets or charges as the regulations necessary from the Province of Ontario have not yet been enacted. The Provincial government is now seeking public comment on proposed changes to the Highway Traffic Act that would allow cities to start enforcement in school zones based on data collected from these cameras. If you support automated speed enforcement in school zones you can comment here until October 3. Toronto’s Automated Speed Enforcement Pilot provides some alarming data for Avenue Road:

  • 60,170 vehicles driving above the speed limit are detected weekly
  • 22,013 vehicles are driving more than 10 km/hr over the speed limit.
  • The maximum speed detected on Avenue Road – a 40 km/hr zone – was 109 km/hr.
  • Average Weekly Volume – 103,180
