Automated Speed Enforcement Program (ASE)
Now in Caledon
Automated Speed Enforcement (ASE) is a system that uses a camera and a speed measurement device to capture images of vehicles going faster than the speed limit.
ASE will only be used in the school zones and community safety zones to protect our most vulnerable residents and help them feel comfortable while walking, running, playing, cycling and generally enjoying their community.
ASE school zone locations in Caledon
The Region of Peel and the Town of Caledon have collaboratively identified 6 school zone locations in the Caledon for the ASE program.
In September 2020, the ASE camera was first installed at Robert F. Hall Catholic Secondary School on Old Church Road east of Innis Lake Road.
This camera has been moved to the second location at Caledon Central Public School on Charleston Sideroad east of Kennedy Road. Warning signs were installed at this second location in August 2020 in order to give drivers advance notice of the change. The camera is currently undergoing testing and will be operational towards the end of April 2021.
Other school zone locations identified for the ASE program include:
- Herb Campbell Public School on King Street
- Caledon East Public School on Airport Road
- Palgrave Public School on Highway 50
- Alton Public School on Main Street
The ASE unit will be rotated amongst these locations listed or other community safety zones on regional roads.
Flashing 40km/h speed limit signs currently at the selected locations will be changed to permanent 40km/h speed signs and minor adjustments to community safety zone and speed limit lengths will be made to ensure vehicles can safely reduce their speed as they approach the ASE camera zones.
- Provincial Offence Officers review the captured vehicle images. They then issue a ticket to the vehicle’s owner, regardless of who was driving the vehicle at the time.
- Convicted vehicle owners will be fined. Demerit points will not be added to the vehicle owner’s license, and the registered owner’s driving record will not be affected.
How ASE improves safety
- Improves safety by making drivers more aware of the need to slow down in school and community safety zones.
- Is designed to work with other traffic safety programs, including improvements to the road network, educational programs and police enforcement.
