Automated Speed Enforcement (ASE) is a modern enforcement tool being deployed by the Town of Ajax to improve safety and enforce speed limits in designated Community Safety Zones (CSZ) on Town Roads.

The Town’s ASE Program includes the use of mobile camera placed in designated CSZ that will take a photo of a vehicle’s licence space that is moving faster than the regulated speed limit.

This speed enforcement measure in combination with radar message boards, ongoing public engagement, traffic engineering improvements and additional police enforcement are all designed to encourage a change in driver behaviour and improve safety in the Town’s CSZ where a higher number of vulnerable road users, including children, tend to be.

The first three locations scheduled for ASE Camera deployment are:

  • Delaney Drive – between Church Street and Ravenscroft Road
  • Williamson Drive E – between Warner Drive and Audley Road
  • Magill Drive – between Westney Road and Coles Avenue

Cameras will be rotated through the Town’s Community Safety Zones. As per provincial requirements, “Municipal Speed Enforcement – Coming Soon” signs have been installed at the above locations, and will remain up for at least 90 days to warn motorists where the cameras will be installed. A report will be before Council in November 2021 for consideration outlining the full implementation plan of the Town's ASE program. 

The ASE program includes the rotation of three cameras through all 12 of our Community Safety Zones. The implementation plan presented in November will provide the proposed schedule which will see the cameras deployed in all 12 Community Safety Zones within the first year of the program.

The Town of Ajax ASE program is deployed on Town Roads. Durham Region also currently operates an ASE program on Regional Roads within the Town of Ajax. Learn more about the Region’s ASE program.
