McGuinty Government Continues To Help Traffic Flow And Keep Roads Safe

For 20 years, Ontario’s COMPASS system has been helping keep travellers safe, managing congestion and keeping travellers moving along some of the busiest highways in North America.

There are currently 222 cameras and 55 electronic signs displaying real-time traffic conditions and road safety messages along 265 kilometres of highway in Ontario.

COMPASS cameras help identify congestion and provide Ontario travellers with real-time information so they can adjust their routes. They also help monitor vehicle collisions and breakdowns so emergency services can respond more quickly, reducing the number of injuries and fatalities.

Through the Open Ontario plan, the government continues to make investments in road safety while helping to create jobs and economic opportunities in Ontario.
