Here are all the spots where you're most likely to get caught on camera speeding in Toronto

The City of Toronto has been busting tens of thousands of speeding drivers per month through its new Automated Speed Enforcement (ASE) camera initiative, with a whopping 34,152 tickets issued in April and another 20,052 in May alone based on data released this week.

While the hulking grey boxes (and the warning signs telling drivers they're coming or in use) have actually caused people to slow down on city streets, but there are still thousands of repeat offenders caught, with certain areas proving to be particularly problematic.

The cameras are moved around every few months, and in this last round, the locations of Parkside Drive south of Algonquin Avenue (Parkdale-High Park) and Mill Road north of Burnhamthorpe Road (Etobicoke Centre) were the most troublesome spots where motorists were fined most often.

Sites are chosen based on data showing where speeding and collisions are most common, as well as in community safety zones. As with red-light cameras, tickets are automatically issued in the mail to offenders.

In this latest, fifth round of the program, the cameras can be found at the following spots (which the city have mapped out online, too):
