P.E.I. is set to increase traffic violation fines, in some cases doubling the value.
The changes to the Highway Traffic Act are currently before the legislature.
If the changes pass, the minimum fine for parking in most prohibited areas will increase from $50 to $100.
Failing to yield to a pedestrian or forgetting to buckle a seatbelt will cost $200, while littering on a provincial highway will yield a $300 ticket.
The fine for not producing a valid insurance card will be $600, up from $200.
Provincial officials said most of the fines have not increased for at least 15 years.
