Photo radar begins in Mississauga next month at these locations


Published June 21, 2021 at 9:12 pm


The first automated speed enforcement (ASE) cameras — also known as photo radar — will begin operation in Mississauga next month.

Two cameras will be operational starting July 5: one on Morning Star Dr. in Malton between Lancaster Ave. and Netherwood Rd.; the other will be on Sawmill Valley Dr. in Erin Mills between Folkway Dr. and Grosvenor Pl.

The cameras will be in areas newly designated as 30-kph school area community safety zones where speeding has proven to be a consistent problem.

When a vehicle exceeds a posted speed limited the ASE will take a picture which will then be reviewed and a ticket issued via mail.

Fines will be based on the rate of speed over the posted limited.

Tickets are issued to the owner of the vehicle regardless of who was driving. No demerit points will be issued and the registered owner’s driving record will not be impacted.

However, the initial enforcement areas are not permanent.

The City of Mississauga will rotate the ASE on a monthly basis to different locations.

Following the initial rollout, the cameras will the move to the following locations in the months ahead.

  • Mississauga Valley Blvd. between Voltarie Cres. and Silver Creek Blvd.
  • Whitehorn Ave. between Weir Chase and Pickwick Dr.
  • Cedar Creek Dr. between Runningbrook Dr. and Lexicon Dr.
  • Old Derry Rd. between Second Line W. and Gooderham Estate Blvd.

Mississauga also plans to implement additional ASE cameras in the future.
