There is a new photo-radar camera on Jane Street, and it’s a doozy.
The camera is located on Jane St. on the hill south of Eglinton. It’s very easy to go faster than the limit there. The hill is steep, the road is wide, and the traffic is irritating. It’s an invitation to put your foot down.
The Jane Street camera is unusual. Most speed cameras in Toronto have been on minor streets and near schools. The camera on Jane is near Roselands Public School, but it is a major road, and while the school is close, I don’t think it fronts the street.
The city issued more than 22,000 tickets in the first month the cameras were functioning. If I understand the fines correctly, speeders will be charged $5 for every kilometre/hr they are going over the the limit of 50.
