City fined $42K after O-Trains went through red lights - Ottawa - CBC News

By CBC News Ottawa, October 13, 2017

The City of Ottawa has been slapped with a $42,708.06 fine after trains on the O-Train Trillium Line blew through red lights at least five times since 2015, according to the head of OC Transpo.

In a memo to members of city council Friday afternoon, transit boss John Manconi said Transport Canada issued a notice of violation to the city on Sept. 21 after the federal agency was notified of an incident in the spring. On May 3, 2017, a train with an operator on board travelled through a red light signal after another oncoming train had already passed by.
