Photo radar was one of the issues that brought down Bob Rae's government in the 90's. It is a shame but I think introducing this kind of enforcement has become a form of political suicide. A government that implements it will suffer the wrath of voters and one that promises to remove it has a good chance for victory at the polls. It will be very hard to get anyone to commit to this political toxin. It may be more palatable for a politician to support a kind of physical modification to the street design that would not invoke cries of 'cash grab' etc.

Red light cameras I think are a different animal. Even the most ardent street speeder usually detests a red light runner so there is less push back from voters on that issue.
