Hamilton will begin using photo radar to ticket speeders in school zones and high risk areas starting Thursday.
The move is part of a one-year pilot project approved by city council.
There will be two cameras rotating through 12 locations across Hamilton.
The 12 locations are:
- Stone Church Rd. E from Dartnall Rd. to Pritchard Rd.
- Broker Dr. from Brentwood Dr. to Kingslea Dr.
- Glancaster Rd. from Rymal Rd. to Twenty Rd.
- Trinity Church Rd. from Guyatt Rd. to Dickenson Rd.
- Second St. N from Charles St. to King St. W
- Greenhill Ave. from Quigley Rd. to Mount Albion Rd.
- Lawrence Rd. from Gage Ave. S to Ottawa St. S
- Lawrence Rd. from Cochrane Rd. to Mount Albion Rd.
- Harvest Rd. in Dundas from Tews Lane to Forest Ave.
- Bellagio Dr. from Fletcher Rd. to Keystone Cres.
- Lewis Rd. from Barton St. E to Highway 8
- Main St. in Waterdown from Parkside Rd. to John St.
If a vehicle is detected travelling in faster than the posted speed limit, the registered owner will receive a ticket regardless of who was driving.
The city says it is not disclosing how much over the speed limit a driver has to be traveling before a ticket will be issued.
“As speed limits are not guidelines – they are the law – there is no need to disclose threshold speeds,” the city said in a release.
“Driving at the posted limit will ensure a ticket is not issued.”
