Photo radar coming to Ottawa school zones in 2019

By Kate Porter, CBC News Ottawa, August 15, 2018

The City of Ottawa expects to start rolling out photo radar in school zones in 2019, and is now gathering data to figure out where speeders pose the greatest danger.

The city's manager of traffic operations, Chris Brinkmann, updated councillors on the plan during Wednesday's transportation committee meeting.

Ontario passed legislation in 2017 allowing cities to use photo radar, but hasn't issued detailed regulations. Brinkmann said municipalities have been working together on an implementation plan, but the ball remains in the province's court.
