More Traffic Tickets Means Fewer Collisions and Injuries for Lethbridge Drivers

 
 

LETHBRIDGE: Tougher traffic enforcement is getting most of the credit for a decline in collisions in our city.

Last month there were 442 collisions in Lethbridge, compared to 657 in December of 2009.

Inspector Bill Kaye with Regional Police explained that those numbers are only a sample of last year, and that they were generally down throughout 2010.

Kaye stated that in 2010 uniformed officers gave out roughly 3,500 more conventional tickets then in 2009. He added that photo radar and Intersection Safety Device cameras added another 3,300 more then in the previous year.

Kaye also noted that another important result of the stricter enforcement was that drivers generally slowed down, meaning the collisions they were involved in were much less serious and there were fewer injuries.
