A speed camera is now up and running to hopefully encourage drivers to ease up on the gas pedal near a Caledon school.

Peel Public Works said on Thursday that an Automated Speed Enforcement (ASE) went online on Airport Road not far from the Caledon East Public School.

The placement of the ASE camera is part of an ongoing rotation by the Region of Peel, moving the mobile speed trap to different areas to increase driver awareness of speed limits in school and community safety zones and help to promote roadway safety.

The Town of Caledon has two additional ASE cameras, and fines for being ticketed can range from $5.00 per kilometre over the speed limit to $12.00 per kilometre, plus additional costs.

But the mobile speed camera won’t be staying still for long as it will be moving to Caledon Central Public School later this year, with signs on Charleston Sideroad to give drivers a heads-up before the change.

Mississauga and Brampton also have their own stock of speed enforcement cameras, with Brampton seeking to add over 100 new speed cameras and license plate scanners.

Brampton has also purchased a building in the city that will be transformed into a new ASE Camera Processing Centre, moving ticket processing from Toronto to Brampton.
