WINNIPEG - More than 2,000 speeding tickets in Winnipeg are being cancelled or refunded due to an administrative error.
The tickets are being tossed because they cite the wrong section of a recently changed provincial law on speeding in construction zones.
Police say a computer used for photo radar had not been updated to cite the new section of the law.
Police say 2,574 photo radar tickets are affected
They were issued between June 27 and July 1 in the 7000 block of Kenaston Boulevard.
The fines would have brought in roughly $1 million.
