Advocacy wins in improving traffic safety

May 20, 2015

AUMA members passed a resolution at the 2014 Conference urging the Government of Alberta to amend the Traffic Safety Act to increase fines for speeding offences on residential streets. AUMA is pleased to announce that our advocacy efforts have helped this change take place.

A general traffic fine increase of 35 per cent and a distracted driving fine increase of 65 per cent came into effect on May 1. Prior to this, fines had not been increased since 2003.
