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.
Speeding is a serious problem on Mississauga roads. 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 camera locations
The ASE program is being rolled out in phases in Mississauga. In phase one, two cameras will be activated in school area community safety zones where speeding has proven to be a consistent problem.
The first two ASE locations are:
- Morning Star Drive, between Lancaster Avenue and Netherwood Road (Ward 5)
- Sawmill Valley Drive between Folkway Drive and Grosvenor Place (Ward 8)
Advance notice signs are now installed in these locations. Once the 90-day notice period is complete, the cameras will begin operating and charges will be issued to vehicles that exceed the posted speed limit.
During phase one, the two ASE cameras will rotate to new locations on a monthly basis. The next four ASE locations are:
- Mississauga Valley Boulevard between Voltarie Crescent and Silver Creek Boulevard (Ward 4)
- Whitehorn Avenue between Weir Chase and Pickwick Drive (Ward 6)
- Cedar Creek Drive between Runningbrook Drive and Lexicon Drive (Ward 3)
- Old Derry Road between Second Line West and Gooderham Estate Boulevard (Ward 11)
All ASE sites will be marked with clear signage before the cameras are installed and while they are in operation.
Check back for future ASE camera locations. Details for each location will be added to this webpage as new sites are selected.
Choosing new 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 new ASE locations.
As new speed limits are put in place, the City will determine which areas are best suited for ASE cameras.
The locations for each camera are prioritized using a data-driven approach that considers the severity of speeding in the area and other factors such as traffic and pedestrian volumes, collision history and site suitability.
Expanding the program
The City will use the information collected during phase one to help plan for future phases of the program.
As more information becomes available, City staff will assess the benefits and feasibility of increasing the number of cameras as well as reviewing the possibility of implementing cameras on different types of roadways that are designated community safety zones.
