Service fees reduced for Albertans when paying fines online
Service fees for online fine payments have been lowered by half to $3.
Starting July 8, Albertans can pay their fines online through fines.alberta.ca. In addition to traffic tickets, any ticket with a voluntary payment amount can be paid, including tickets for common liquor offences and LRT or C-Train violations.
The online ticket payment page is part of the larger MyAlberta eServices portal.
“By cutting service fees in half, this system will save Albertans money. Online fine payment is a convenient and secure service available at any time of day or night.”
Paying traffic and other tickets expands the list of online government services available to Albertans on the MyAlberta eServices portal. Other services available include driver’s licence and vehicle registration renewal reminders and security licences.
“This smart, modern, online service will save taxpayers nearly $2.5 million a year ? all while protecting face-to-face registry services Albertans rely on in their communities.”
Until July 7, online fine payments were processed by the Association of Alberta Registry Agents and the Alberta Motor Association at a cost of $6 per transaction.
This new service will also free up court resources. The MyAlberta eServices portal will have real-time access to court data, which significantly reduces error rates and time spent by court staff making corrections. This time could be used to provide other court-related services to Albertans.
- Fines for traffic tickets can still be paid in-person at any Alberta registry office.
- Albertans can pay their tickets at fines.alberta.ca.
