Coleman playing tough

It seems traffic fine money sent to municpalities with no strings prior to the election has developed them after. Solicitor-General Rich Coleman is now talking tough...
"Coleman says it's not acceptable for local governments to use the extra cash from traffic fines for general revenue instead of the stated purpose of public safety. Coleman says he's asked his staff to keep an eye on the issue to make sure the money is spent as intended." ~ CKNW May 31, 2005

Is this another case of the BC Liberals saying one thing before the election and doing another after? You be the judge. The money clearly had no strings attached, though it has been suggested municpalities use it for crime and or safety. Now the Liberals are suggesting they may make up new rules.
