The City of Hamilton has recently established Automated Speed Enforcement cameras in parts of the city in order to make our streets safer.  Unfortunately many of these cameras are set up in remote areas, while streets in more densely populated areas are plagued by aggressive driving and excessive speeding.  If the goal of ASE is to make our streets safer, they need to be used more effectively.  

The major thoroughfares of the south Mountain (such as Upper Gage) have long stretches with uninterrupted traffic flow.  As a result, there are many instances of vehicular speeding on a daily basis.  These thoroughfares are also lined by densely populated residential neighbourhoods and many children in these neighbourhoods cross these thoroughfares to get to school.  

Yesterday, a young boy tragically lost his life after being hit by a vehicle while crossing Upper Gage, with a crossing guard present.  He was Hamilton's 14th traffic fatality of the year.  

The city must take action to prevent traffic fatalities, and the solution is simple.  ASE needs to be established along the south mountain thoroughfares in order to discourage excessive speeding.  

We call upon Mayor Eisenberger and city councillors to make this happen immediately.
