Brampton Advances Road Safety with New Automated Speed Enforcement Centre

The City of Brampton is making significant strides in road safety by advancing plans for a new Automated Speed Enforcement (ASE) Regional Processing Centre. With City Council’s approval, nearly 50 new positions will be filled to support the Centre, and preparatory work is underway to expand Brampton’s ASE program. This includes hiring additional Automated Enforcement and Screening Officers, conducting site inspections, configuring software, analyzing data, and installing speed enforcement signage.

This initiative aims to improve road safety by processing more images, deterring speeding, and upholding local traffic by-laws.

Councillor Santos said, “Our residents deserve to feel safe on our roads. The new Automated Speed Enforcement Regional Processing Centre is a significant milestone in our ongoing commitment to road safety and adds to the other strategic traffic calming measures we implemented that save lives and enhance the quality of life in our community. This initiative reflects our dedication to making Brampton the best place to live, work and play.

Acquired in December 2023, the new Centre will serve municipalities across Ontario and is expected to be operational by summer 2024.

Brampton leads in creating safer streets through its ASE program, currently operating 50 cameras with plans to expand to 185 by summer 2025, including 20 new cameras installed in summer 2024. This ambitious rollout is the fastest in Ontario, with most municipalities deploying such numbers over several years.

Local residential streets in Brampton are designed to be safe spaces for residents to play and stay active. The City has implemented 180 Community Safety Zones, reducing speed limits to 40 kilometres per hour around schools, daycare centres, playgrounds, parks, hospitals, and senior residences. Additional traffic calming measures include flashing 40 signs, watch for children signs, crosswalk markings, and speed bumps.

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