Toronto’s photo radar cameras have nabbed more than 81,000 speeders in the first three months of this year.

The city data  shows that about 8 per cent of the vehicles photographed speeding between January and March were dinged more than once.

There were at least 20,000 tickets issued each month:

  • January – 28,231 tickets
  • February – 22,860 tickets
  • March – 30,456 tickets

 

Data for April will be released in the coming weeks.

Approximately one fifth of tickets issued came from a camera on Sheppard Avenue East.

The camera at Sheppard and Don Mills sees the highest traffic levels of any in the city and accounted for 20 per cent of tickets. The camera caught more than 16,000 speeders.

The speed limit in that area of Sheppard was reduced to 50km/h in December 2019 to help reduce speeds and limit collisions.

The city says they will begin relocating photo radar cameras now to prepare for enforcement in June. Warning signs have been posted at all new locations to warn drivers in advance.
