Ontario, Canada Prepares to Institute Automated Speed Enforcement Systems

The new regulations seek to help municipalities develop effective strategies to combat dangerous driving. Toronto, in particular, has been pushing for automated speed enforcement to help eliminate traffic fatalities as part of its Vision Zero initiative.

In 2018, Toronto instituted data-gathering traffic radars in many local school zones. These devices could only monitor traffic, not charge fines. However, the revised policy will allow traffic monitors to ticket speeders.
