Red light camera tickets for police officers

Even Waterloo Regional Police officers are getting caught by red-light cameras.

A report says 12 red-light camera tickets were issued to the service in 2012 with half of those tickets resulted in notes on officers’ records.

The police chief says none of the infractions resulted in collisions.

Police Services Board Chair, Tom Galloway says police must abide by the Highway Traffic Act like all other vehicles.

A red light ticket costs over $300 which the owner of the vehicle is responsible for paying. In this case the police service foots the bill.

Beckett says the money is put back into the Region meaning there is no end impact on the tax payer from a tax cost perspective.

The region has a total of 16 red light cameras.
