Toronto’s 50 new speed cameras will start giving out tickets today
Did you know that Toronto just got 50 new speed cameras around the city? Now you do! They’re in common areas of concern like school zones and they’re officially in service dishing out tickets starting today.
So here’s how it works. For every kilometre above the speed limit you’re caught going, you get a set fine. The dollar amount ranges from $5 per km/hr for those going 1-19 above the limit. That can go all the way up to $12 per km/hr for those going 30-49 above the limit. And if a vehicle is caught going more than 50 km/hr above the limit, the owner will automatically be issued summons to appear before a Justice of the Peace.

So even speeding a little bit can get you a pretty nasty fine. By our calculations, just 10 km/hr over will cost $50. So you’ll wanna be extra careful in these zones.
Two of these new speed cameras were placed in each of the city’s 25 wards. And if you’d like to see a full map of where they are, you can do so here.
So drive carefully, everybody! Not only is it the safe thing to do, but because speeding might just come with a pretty hefty price tag.
