Red light cameras now live and violations in effect in City of Brantford

Red light camera sign

BRANTFORD, ON: The City’s red light camera program is designed to modify aggressive driving behaviour and increase awareness of the dangers of running red lights. Consistent with our goals as a Vision Zero city, earlier this year, the City of Brantford introduced a red light camera program that aims to make local streets safer for residents and all road users. Five red light cameras are now live and fully operational, meaning violations are now being both recorded and enforced.

Locations that are now live include:

  1. Veterans MP/ Blackburn Drive  
  2. Wayne Gretzky/ Henry  
  3. Clarence/ Icomm  
  4. Wayne Gretzky/ Morton  
  5. Market/Wellington  

The cameras will capture images of vehicles that enter an intersection in spite of the traffic signal indicating red. The camera automatically takes two photos of the vehicle, one entering and one proceeding through the intersection, and is used to assist authorities with enforcing traffic laws.

Drivers are reminded that it is unsafe and illegal for motorists to enter an intersection after the traffic signal light has turned red. The set fine for running a red light is $325. The fine is issued to the owner of the vehicle, regardless of who is driving the vehicle at the time of the offence. Residents and local road users are encouraged to visit for more information regarding the program. 

Brantford City Council adopted the Vision Zero Road Safety Strategic Plan on April 27, 2021. The goal of Vision Zero is to eliminate all collisions that result in serious injuries or fatalities. Visit for more information on the Vision Zero Road Safety Plan.
