The City of Toronto has, for the third time, moved its automated speed enforcement (ASE) cameras around the city to begin ticketing those driving faster than the speed limit in June.

From January to March, the 50 speed cameras issued a total of 81,557 fines in their previous locations; 28,231 tickets in January; 22,860 in February and 30,466 in March. Data for April will be released in the coming weeks, the City said.

In each of the first three months of 2021, the device on Sheppard Avenue East, west of Don Mills Road, issued the most tickets accounting for between 17 and 23 per cent of all fines.

“Sheppard Avenue East west of Don Mills Road is a wide arterial roadway with six lanes of traffic and a significant downhill slope,” the City said “It is also the ASE site with the highest daily traffic volume from the current round of locations.”

Fifty ASE cameras were installed, two per ward, across Toronto in community safety zones (near schools) and began issuing speeding tickets last summer.

Tickets through ASE cameras are fines only; no demerit points are issued. The fines are also billed and mailed to the registered vehicle owner, regardless of who was driving. The registered vehicle owner’s driving record will not be impacted through these tickets, the City said.

Now, the cameras will be relocated to new parts of the city for a third round. The cameras typically stay in the same area for about five months.

Warning signs have been placed at all new locations to warn drivers in advance, the City said.
