Decrease in photo enforcement tickets causes police revenues to drop
Money generated from photo enforcement continues to drop in Winnipeg.
A first quarter report projects police revenues will fall by $889,000, mainly because of fewer tickets being issued.
Police have previously said drivers are changing their behaviour when passing through school and construction zones. There's also been less enforcement in some cases.
The report also said there's a high degree of risk that revenues could be even lower because officer-issued tickets are down too, due to more drivers fighting them in court.
By the numbers
The report also sheds light on some of the numbers behind photo enforcement ticketing in Winnipeg.
In 2015, a total of 10,002 red light offences and 29,366 speeding offences were captured at intersection safety cameras. There were 33 ISCs rotating through areas with statistically high rates of unsafe driving behavior.
Meanwhile, mobile photo radar captured 108,968 vehicles in violation.
