There are a pair of new automated speed cameras looking out for fast drivers in Caledon ahead of the back-to-school season.

The town announced on Wednesday that new automated speed enforcement (ASE) cameras have been set up in two community safety zones.

ASE cameras monitor drivers’ speed and, if a vehicle is faster than the speed limit in an automated speed enforcement area, the ASE system takes an image that is stored and reviewed by a provincial offences officer.

The cameras will rotate between different zones in Caledon where vehicle speed is a concern, and add to the Region of Peel’s fleet of mobile ASE cameras for regional roads in Caledon.

“These cameras are in our Community Safety Zones near schools and where families, seniors and children walk, bike and play,” said Mayor Annette Groves. “As children return to school these cameras will make a difference in encouraging safe driving behaviors (sic)”

Tickets from an ASE camera are mailed to the owner of the vehicle within 30 days of the offence, outlining next steps and the cost of the associated fine. Unlike other speeding tickets, automated speed enforcement camera fines don’t come with demerit points.
