Traffic violation fines increase 35%

Lethbridge Police Service

Police are reminding motorists that those who are caught speeding, driving while distracted or disobeying other rules of the road will have to dig deeper into their wallets.

Effective today (May 1), all traffic fines for violations under the Alberta Traffic Safety Act and associated regulations have increased by 35 per cent. The changes were previously announced as part of Alberta’s 2015 fiscal budget.


General speeding fines will now range from $78 (1 km over) to $474 (50 km over) and $156 to $949 through construction zones. Failing to stop for a red light increases from $287 to $388 and the distracted driving fine has increased from $172 to $287. Other offences under the Traffic Safety Act have also increased.

Police are reminding motorists to always drive safely and obey the rules of the road.
