New Mississauga photo radar cameras will rotate through different streets

Photo radar is now in place on two Mississauga streets.

The speed catcher program — known officially as automated speed enofrocement (ASE) cameras — will be set up 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.

ASE uses a camera and speed measurement device to enforce the speed limit. When a vehicle is detected travelling above the posted speed limit, a ticket is issued to the registered owner of the vehicle.

“Today we have taken another important step towards improving road safety and achieving Mississauga’s Vision Zero goals. We know that speeding can have terrible consequences and we must, as a city, take action to get motorists to slow down,” said Mayor Bonnie Crombie.

“If you are driving in Mississauga, please do your part to keep all road users safe and obey the speed limit. When you do, you won’t receive a ticket from an ASE camera and you’ll be making our streets safer for everyone.”

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 depending on the success of the program.
