​​​​​​​City outlines plan to begin hiring staff, installing new cameras and preparing streets to enhance traffic calming measures 

​​BRAMPTON, ON (May 29, 2024) – The City of Brampton is taking significant steps to enhance road safety by advancing plans for a new Automated Speed Enforcement (ASE) Regional Processing Centre. Today, City Council approved hiring 26 additional positions for the new Regional Processing Centre, including Automated Enforcement and Screening Officers. This adds to the 16 positions approved for the new ASE Regional Processing Centre in the 2024 Budget​creating a total of 42 new jobs. In addition, work is commencing to prepare local streets for the expansion of Brampton’s ASE program, which includes conducting site inspections, configuring software, data analysis and installing speed enforcement signage.ASE​New Automated Speed Enforcement Regional Processing Centre located at 175 Sandalwood Parkway West, Brampton, ON

​​​This initiative will enhance the safety of roads within the City and will add resources to uphold local traffic by-laws. The new Regional Processing Centre, acquired in December 2023, will process more images, deter speeding and increase road safety. Operating as a regional processing centre, the new facility will provide processing services to municipalities across Ontario. The Centre is anticipated to be operational in the summer of 2024.

Brampton is a leader in creating safer streets through its ASE program. Currently operating 50 ASE cameras, the City plans to expand to 185 cameras in the summer of 2025, with 20 new cameras installed in the summer of 2024. This commitment represents the most ambitious municipal ASE camera rollout in Ontario. The timeline for the rollout is also substantially faster than most other municipalities, with deployments of this size typically occurring over more than four years. 

Local residential streets serve as a safe place for residents to play and enjoy an active lifestyle and the City is committed to keeping them safe and comfortable for all road users. In addition to the ASE program, the City has implemented 180 Community Safety Zones, lowering the speed limit to 40 kilometres per hour around schools. Brampton continues to implement other traffic calming measures including flashing 40 signs, watch for children signs, pedestrian crosswalks and speed cushions. 

The safety and well-being of Brampton’s residents is paramount, and City of Brampton supports the Region of Peel’s Vision Zero Road Safety Strategic Plan. The ASE program is a key strategy within the Vision Zero Framework to deter speeding and enhance road safety.
