It looks like Ontario is ready to bring photo radar back.
Premier Kathleen Wynne said she’s planning to introduce legislation that would help municipalities fight speeding in school and community safety zones.
In Ottawa on Tuesday, Wynne says too many people are being hurt and killed by motorists who drive too fast.
“We have seen too many injuries and deaths caused by drivers who speed and endanger people’s lives. Our intent is to give municipalities more tools to help keep people safe on our roads.”
If the bill passes, there won’t be officers holding radar guns near safety zones. Instead, new-speed activated cameras would be installed.
The legislation would also make it easier for municipalities to get red lights cameras approved.
Photo radar was introduced in the 1990’s by the NDP government but was axed by Premier Mike Harris after the Progressive Conservatives won the 1995 election.
