DATA - Traffic Tickets Issued 2014 to 2018

Ticket WriterICBC has published data on traffic tickets issued in BC during the years 2014 to 2018. It's a great reference document to cite when you are worried about enforcement that is not being done. The rounded total of tickets issued in 2018 is 566,790 which is about 19% higher than in 2017.Traffic camera charges are listed separately in this document. Red light camera violations increased to 82,000 in 2018 compared to 33,000 in 2017. It will be interesting to see the number of speeding tickets issued by intersection cameras if they are listed in the 2019 document.

Bicycling Violations

Interesting that the number of bicycling specific violations dropped from 4700 in 2014 to 2500 in 2018 even as the number of cyclists increased. This article is also interesting on how cyclists just don't pay their tickets and how the number of tickets dropped by 50 percent from 2008 to 2012.  So I am worried that there is very little enforcement of the rules on cyclists and the data seems to back that worry conclusively. Cyclists are completely immune to traffic camera violations as far as I am aware. Is there a way to deliver such a ticket?

Intersection Safety Cameras

Not unless they start putting licence plates on bicycles...
