Abbotsford receives $1.5M in traffic fine revenue

Abbotsford will receive slightly more than $1.5 million from the B.C. government’s strategic community investment fund.

The money is coming from the traffic fine revenue sharing program – part of almost $74 million being invested into communities across B.C. to help cover costs of policing, new equipment, increased community safety initiatives, infrastructure and other priorities.

“This particular funding package takes pressure off local taxpayers,” Abbotsford South MLA Darryl Plecas said.

The traffic fine program directly assists eligible municipalities that pay police enforcement costs. Funding comes from ticket fines and court-imposed fines on violation tickets.
