4 picture radar cameras caught greater than 10,000 automobiles breaking velocity limits within the final half of July, Mayor Jim Watson reported Wednesday.

Watson, who introduced the small batch of picture radar statistics on the high of a council assembly, mentioned 10,771 tickets have been generated by the brand new speed-enforcement cameras between July 13 — the primary day the cameras have been operational — and July 31.

The very best velocity recorded was 89 km/h on Meadowlands Drive close to St. Gregory Faculty, Watson mentioned.

Watson mentioned picture radar is a vital security software, not a money seize.

“I hope this shines a light-weight on how significantly we now have to take street security in our faculty zones and the way important picture radar can be in addressing a few of this harmful behaviour,” Watson mentioned.

Two of the 4 cameras are rotated by completely different neighborhood security zones. The opposite two cameras are fastened.

There have been no different statistics launched for the interval after July 31.
