As part of Durham Vision Zero’s goal to eliminate fatalities on our roadways, red-light cameras have arrived at select locations throughout Durham Region to help improve traffic safety.
Red-light running has the potential to cause serious injury or death for both the offending driver and innocent victims. The Region’s collision records database shows 534 collisions over a three-and-a-half-year period at signalized intersections where the cause was specifically attributed to a driver disobeying traffic-control indications. Many of these collisions resulted in significant injuries and sometimes death.
The Region of Durham is one of many municipalities across Ontario using red-light cameras to create safer roads.
Durham Vision Zero is a long-term plan to ensure a safe transportation system that sees no lives lost or serious injuries on Durham’s roadways.
Durham Region worked with a consultant to review data from all 623 signalized intersections across the Region concentrating on intersections with a high volume of right-angle (T-bone) collisions. Based on that review, the following 12 locations were selected for the installation of red-light cameras:
Ritson Road at Bond Street – Oshawa
Lake Ridge Road at Goodwood Road – Scugog/Uxbridge
Taunton Road at Lake Ridge Road – Whitby/Ajax
Stevenson Road at King Street – Oshawa
Simcoe Street at Conlin Road – Oshawa
Simcoe Street at Rossland Road – Oshawa
Taunton Road at Altona Road – Pickering
Liverpool Road at Bayly Street – Pickering
Salem Road at Bayly Street – Ajax
Thickson Road at Dundas Street – Whitby
Regional Highway 2 at Courtice Road – Clarington
Westney Road at Delaney Drive/Magill Drive– Ajax
As the Region gains more experience operating red-light cameras, additional sites may be added in the future.
