Mayor Crombie Welcomes Proposed Safety Cameras Legislation

“I welcome news that the Wynne government will empower municipalities to install Safety Cameras near schools to reduce dangerous speeding and protect families.

“All options must be on the table to keep children safe.

“I am adamant that all revenue generated by Safety Cameras must be invested back into community safety.

“Safety Cameras cannot become a cash grab. This has to be about keeping children safe.

“Safety Cameras could also help free up highly-trained police officers from manning radar guns to do more pressing community safety work.

“We will need greater discussions at Council, with our Traffic Safety Council, Safe City Mississauga and consultations with schools, parent councils, trustees and residents, to ensure Safety Cameras will make a positive difference in neighbourhoods.”
