Automated Speed Enforcement (ASE) is coming soon to Mississauga.
This system uses a camera and a speed measurement device to help enforce speed limits in school area community safety zones.
ASE will help make our streets safer for everyone by encouraging drivers to slow down and obey the speed limit.
How automated speed enforcement works
When a vehicle exceeds the posted speed limit in an ASE area, the ASE system captures an image. Then a provincial offences officer reviews the image and issues a ticket. The ticket, including a digital copy of the image and an enlargement of the license plate, is mailed to the registered plate holder within 30 days of the offence.
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.
Timing and locations
According to Ontario Regulations, ASE Cameras can only be installed in community safety zones where the speed limit is less than 80 km/h.
As part of the Neighbourhood Area Speed Limit project, the City is identifying school area community safety zones and lowering speed limits across Mississauga. This will help make our streets safer and prepare for ASE.
With new speed limits in place, ASE is expected to rollout in 2021. All ASE sites will be marked with clear signage before the cameras are installed – and while they are in operation.
