More Than $1.8 Million In Ticket Discounts Available To Drivers
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: DECEMBER 28, 2018
Calgary, Alberta: Pending fears of a Canada Post work stoppage, both Edmonton and Calgary decided to stop mailing photo radar and red light camera tickets. This created a massive backlog of more than 120,000 tickets.
According to the Alberta Government, “Because of potential and actual postal service interruptions, the mailing of photo enforcement tickets was suspended from September 20 to December 3, 2018 by many law enforcement agencies to ensure service of violation tickets by mail would be legally valid.”
Drivers, already in the annual post-holiday money crunch, are now receiving tickets from as far back as September. Rooco Founder and CEO, Andrew Ashton, talks about how Rooco can help you save money on your ticket. “Rooco is Canada’s first traffic ticket sharing app. We guarantee anyone who pays their ticket at Rooco.ca saves 10-15% off the fine amount. There’s no line-ups, fees or service charges to worry about and you can do it all from your phone or computer in less than 90 seconds.”
Ashton, on Rooco helping people save more than $1.8 Million on outstanding traffic tickets. “January brings a new year and a fresh start, after a hectic and expensive holiday season. Most people don’t set money aside to pay a photo radar or red light camera ticket, so that money comes directly off the bottom line of their budget. Being able to save fifty or even twenty dollars, goes a long way this time of year.”
