​​​​​​Automated Speed Enforcement (ASE), an automated system that uses a camera and a speed measurement device to enforce speed limits, is a traffic calming tool that uses technology to help make roads safer for all users.

ASE is designed to work in tandem with other road safety m​​easures, such as traffic calming, community safety zones, speed display boards, education initiatives, and police enforcement, to help improve safety for people of all ages by:

  • increasing speed compliance
  • altering driver behaviour
  • increasing public awareness about the critical need to slow down​

An ASE system captures and records images only of vehicles travelling in excess of the posted speed limit in scho​ol zones and community safety zones, with tickets issued to the registered plate holder regardless of who was driving. This will result in a monetary fine, but no demerit points will be applied. The cameras are designed to follow traditional speed enforcement however the ASE threshold speed to trigger a fine is not being made public. This is standard practice across the province.

The fines for speeding in a Community Safety Zone are as follows:

  • 1 to 19 km over the limit is $5.00 per kilometre plus costs
  • 20 to 29 km over the limit is $7.50 per kilometre plus costs
  • 30 to 49 km over the limit is $12.00 per kilometre plus costs ​

The City of Brampton was one of the first municipalities in Ontario to implement ASE, introducing its first notification sign on December 19, 2019. ASE will be deployed in Brampton in September 2020. You won’t see ASE everywhere – just in community safety zones​, and on roadways posted less than 80 km per hour, where it will be used to protect our most vulnerable populations and help them feel comfortable while walking, running, playing, cycling, and generally enjoying their communities.

ASE is about safety. Everyone has likely exceeded the speed limit at one time or another, but with clear signage posted, ASE is the reminder we ALL need to slow down and help keep our communities safe.​

ASE Camera Locations

​On July 8 2020, City Council approved the implementation of Automated Speed Enforcement (ASE) throughout 200 locations annually, to reduce speeding and traffic-related incidents and enhance road safety for all users in Brampton.

To build awareness, signage will also be installed at entry points in to the city to advise motorists that ASE is in effect and that speeding is not tolerated in the community.​

Regional Automated Speed ​Enforcement (ASE) Camera Processing Centre​

The City of Brampton’s Regional Automated Speed Enforcement (ASE) Process​ing Centre, located at 175 Sandalwood Parkway, will significantly enhance the efficiency of processing speed violations and improve community and road safety for Brampto​n residents.

The centre is anticipated to open in summer 2024.​​
