We are wrapping up the year with more red light camera installations across the city.
And because of its positive feedback, the city has now decided to push through with its plan on installing photo radar cameras that will help monitor the speed of every passing vehicle.
The plan which has been in the works since 2016 is also included in the city’s Vision Zero Road Safety Project.
Most of its policies will be similar to how red light cameras work. Safety is the number one goal in this project. It has been ever since. That is why these Automated Speed Enforcement (ASE) cameras aim to decrease pedestrian and cyclists fatalities.
According to reports, the city has started installing around 50 cameras on local roads and areas where most collisions and fatalities were reported.
It is also expected to be installed on school zones and community safety zones. Drivers are being advised to be cautious with their speed.
The ASE cameras will capture the following:
- Date and time
- Rate of speed recorded
- Description of location
- Description of vehicle
- Photo of vehicle’s license plate
Although cameras have started to be installed, drivers will be getting tickets in spring 2020. For now, they’ll be receiving warning letters included in the 90-day public education campaign to give drivers knowledge about the new regulations.
