Provincial Offences Office
New to the City of Greater Sudbury – Red-Light Cameras
Starting September 21, 2022, the activation of red-light cameras will commence.
A red-light camera is a system used to photograph motor vehicles that fail to stop when facing a red traffic light at an intersection. The camera captures two photos. The first, before the vehicle enters the intersection and the second, after the vehicle has crossed the stop line. If convicted, the only penalty is a fine against the registered owner of the motor vehicle.
If you receive a red-light camera traffic ticket, you have 15 days to select an option on the back of your ticket. For more information on the options available when receiving this type of ticket, visit Fight a Ticket.
For more information regarding how red-light cameras work, frequently asked questions and their location, please visit Red-light cameras.
