Police services don't receive any money from tickets....all goes to the municipality where the offence is issue. Municipality then can use the money as they see fit.

Cash grab would be something you can not avoid paying for (gasoline, taxes, etc..) Traffic offences can easily be avoided by following the laws that are in place, therefore if one never breaks a law, there is no penalty or money to hand out.

Oh sorry yes the mancipality gets the money. But wait what is the biggest expense of the mancipality? That's right Police services.

In 2009 there where about 500,000 HTA charges laid(p30)... at average $100 a ticket thats, $50,000,000 in income. And this is excluding any driving while impaired, any by-law charges. 1 ticket for every six people man/woman/child?

I'm not saying that they should give out tickets. There are many tickets that should be given. I am saying that the vast majority of tickets they do give out are for the purposes of filling these quotas.

And they are soon going to be costing us more
