From when the tickets were first issued on March 8, 2015 to December 31, 2015, the project collected about $8.4 million.
Of that money, $2.1 million goes to the province’s Victims of Crime Fund, $1.7 million is retained by the province for the Administration of Court and Correction Process.
From November 2014, when the project officially began, to December 31, 2015, $2.7 million has been used for expenses.
What’s left over is $1.9 million, which goes to Traffic Safety Initiatives throughout the province.
Don McMorris Minister Responsible for SGI says it’s too soon to tell if they will expand or renew the program at the end of the two years.”
“Statistics need time to be statistically significant and I would say after 12 months, we’re not there.”
McMorris says the project was started not as a cash grab, but as a way to reduce traffic collisions.
