Photograph radar is rolling out in Ottawa beginning July 13.

Council on Wednesday voted unanimously in favour of turning on the pace enforcement cameras after the pilot program was delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Photograph radar in a handful of group security zones was supposed to begin in March, however the pandemic pressured college students to remain house for the remainder of the college 12 months.

In keeping with the town, police have observed a rise in dashing vehicles and the variety of cyclists and pedestrians throughout daytime hours. Police have boosted pace enforcement on arterial roads.

Coun. Tim Tierney, chair of council’s transportation committee, stated there’s “a whole lot of race automotive drivers on the market,” noting the variety of complaints about dashing coming into his workplace.

Council has already accepted the eight areas close to faculties that can get photograph radar first. They’re:

  • Innes Highway (École secondaire catholique Béatrice-Desloges)
  • Bayshore Drive (St. Rose of Lima Faculty)
  • Ogilvie Highway (Gloucester Excessive Faculty)
  • Smyth Highway (Vincent Massey Public Faculty, Hillcrest Excessive Faculty and École secondaire catholique Franco-Cité)
  • Meadowlands Drive West (St. Gregory Faculty)
  • Watters Highway (St. Francis of Assisi Faculty)
  • Longfields Drive (École élémentaire catholique Pierre-Elliott-Trudeau, St. Mom Teresa Excessive Faculty and Longfields-Davidson Heights Secondary Faculty)
  • Katimavik Highway (Holy Trinity Catholic Excessive Faculty)
