Officers will be at the worst intersections in the city this month to watch for offenders. They issued 43 traffic tickets at those intersection in two days alone.

Fine associated with traffic light related offences include:

  • $180 and 3 points for fail to stop for amber light
  • $325 and 3 points for fail to stop for red light
