Enforcement data for January will be available in the coming weeks.

A map of all current and planned locations is available at

Site selection is primarily based on data that indicate where speed and collision challenges exist near schools in Community Safety Zones. Additional considerations include avoiding areas of planned road work, speed limit changes, obstructions or impediments to equipment, and limited boulevard space.

The ASE program aims to increase road safety, reduce speeding and raise public awareness about the need to slow down and obey posted speed limits. The 50 ASE devices are installed city-wide on local, collector and arterial roads in Community Safety Zones near schools. Each ward has two ASE devices that capture and record images of vehicles travelling in excess of the posted speed limit. Signage has been installed in advance of all ASE locations so that motorists are aware of their presence.

“Far too many drivers are speeding on our roads and our speed cameras are one way we are increasing enforcement to crack down on this dangerous behaviour and protect all road users including pedestrians and cyclists. As evidenced by enforcement data for previous locations, Automated Speed Enforcement works in changing driver behaviour and reducing speeding incidents, and I am certain we will see this positive impact repeat itself wherever the speed cameras are placed.”
– Mayor John Tory

“The data is clear: speeding is an issue in our city. Speed cameras in Community Safety Zones make it safer for our children and families to walk or bike to school. Automated Speed Enforcement is a Vision Zero measure that addresses speeding by promoting a culture of safe and responsible driving.”
– Councillor Jennifer McKelvie (Scarborough-Rouge Park), Chair of the Infrastructure and Environment Committee
