Here’s where Mississauga’s nine speed cameras are nabbing lead-footed drivers
Published January 31, 2022 at 3:15 pm
Mississauga officials plan to eventually have 22 Automated Speed Enforcement (ASE) cameras up and working to clamp down on lead-footed drivers near school zones across the city.
As of today, though, only nine of the cameras are actively tracking speeders in Community Safety Zones near schools, a City of Mississauga ASE map shows.
Officials had wanted to go active with the full complement by December, but have fallen short of that goal.
Eventually, the plan is to have all 22 cameras active and rotating between various speeding hot spots across the city. Residents will be notified of camera locations prior to their deployment.
“All ASE sites will be marked with clear signs 90 days before the cameras are installed, and while they are in operation,” City officials say on their website.
Speeders caught on camera will have offence tickets mailed to the address of the vehicle’s registered owner.

Geoff Wright, the City’s commissioner of transportation and works, said earlier that the ASE cameras are part of a multipronged effort to attack the issue of speeders.
“We have multiple programs and initiatives to slow drivers down. (Last) year, we deployed more than 50 ‘slow streets’ and speed radar devices on 128 roads to make you aware of your speed, and designated 93 new Community Safety Zones where the speed limit has been reduced and the fines for speeding have been doubled,” said Wright.
Mississauga officials launched the ASE program early last year, starting with two cameras that rotated to various speeding hot spots in the city.
The ASE cameras were first set up in Community Safety Zones in Malton and Erin Mills in early July.
Nearly 500 speeding tickets were issued at the two spots–Morning Star Dr. in Malton and Sawmill Valley Dr. in Erin Mills–in a one-month span.
In a report from 2020, City staff estimated that 22 ASE cameras would generate 160,000 charges annually.
The nine locations where ASE cameras are currently active are:
- Camilla Rd., between The Queensway and Cherry Post Dr.
- Church St., between Main and Queen Sts. (Streetsville)
- Clarkson Rd. S., between Matena Ave. and Sunningdale Bend
- Colonial Dr., between Garthwood and Orleans Rds.
- Darcel Ave., between Wrenwood Cr. and Brandon Gate Dr.
- Fallingbrook Dr., between Dream Crest Rd. and Sherwood Mills Blvd.
- Middlebury Dr., between Thomas St. and Dinning Crt.
- Rosehurst Dr., between Terragar Blvd. and Densbury Dr.
- Runningbrook Dr., between Autumn Harvest Dr. and Riverspray Cr.
