Programming error creates 299 incorrect speed cam tickets

The City says that it’s 50 Automated Speed Enforcement (ASE) cameras issued a total of 7,645 tickets between July 6 and 20, 2020, the first two weeks following the start of issuing tickets. Some 890 of these were sent to drivers unfortunate to fly down the four-lane speedway known as Renforth Drive in Etobicoke. The camera there is at Lafferty St. between Michael Power High School and Hollycrest Middle School.

Wrongly programmed cameras sent fines for driving under limit

The City release also says that the company programming the ASE cameras made a mistake with two of them. It set the limit at 30 km/hr in a 40 km/hr zone. Funny, but not so funny if you got one of these tickets. Some 299 tickets were withdrawn. The full news release may be seen here.
