Proposed legislation spurs OTA’s concern with photo radar

by Truck News

TORONTO, Ont. – The Ontario Trucking Association (OTA) plans to work with its members to ensure a proposed piece of legislation on community safety and school zones deals with what it called problematic issues associated with photo radar, as well as other industry concerns.

Ontario premier Kathleen Wynne announced she intends to introduce the legislation, which would give municipalities the power to improve safety in community and school zones.

The safety measures would include automated speed enforcement technology, photo radar, the ability to create zones with reduced speed limits and a streamlined process to participate in the province’s Red Light Camera program.

The OTA said it would focus its efforts on the expansion of safety zones in municipalities.
