Street safety is a priority and local residential streets should feel safe, comfortable, and be places where you get to know your neighbours. This is why the City of Brampton has started a pilot project called Neighbourhood Speed Safety Zones.
The speed limit in Neighbourhood Speed Safety Zones is 40 km/hr
The safety and well-being of Brampton's residents is a high priority. No loss of life is acceptable. Through adoption of the Vision Zero framework, the City of Brampton recognizes the need to design, maintain and operate a transportation system that eliminates human error.
City staff will test the 40 km/h speed limit pilot project in five neighbourhoods starting October 1, 2023, to see if it is an effective tool in neighbourhood traffic management. The pilot locations are as follows:
- Royal Palm Drive Neighbourhood (Ward 2)
- Southwest Quadrant - Downtown Brampton (Ward 3)
- Elbern Markell Drive/Royal West Drive Neighbourhood (Ward 5)
- Westbrook Drive/Don Minaker Drive/Riverstone Drive Neighbourhood (Ward 8)
- Mount Royal Circle Neighbourhood (Ward 10)
Other traffic management tools the City of Brampton is using include Automated Speed Enforcement (ASE) cameras and Community Safety Zones.
Brampton has 50 ASE cameras installed across the city, making it the second largest ASE program in Ontario. Brampton has also established 180 Community Safety Zones.
