Photo radar map shows where Brampton made $1 million

Brampton’s new photo radar system appears to be doing what it was intended to do – make drivers pay for speeding along the streets of the city.
With 32 cameras spread out at different location across Brampton, the Automated Speed Enforcement system, known as ASE, has caught over 10,000 speeders which have led to fines of more than $1 million.
The program began in September following an initiative by Queen’s Park that gave approval to municipal governments to install the systems.
Previous attempts to implement photo radar in Ontario were met with disapproval from members of the public who viewed it as a money grab, while some safety experts agreed saying it didn’t prevent drivers from speeding.
Still, the program is pushing ahead in Brampton which has a goal of eventually placing 200 cameras across the city.
ASE does have some restrictions, however. The devices will only be permitted in school zones and community safety zones where the speed limit is below 80 km/h.
