move over Viginia, Canada's got a bigger speeding ticket now.

Ya'll remember the thread about the big speeding tickets they are going to be giving in Virginia?
Well, cananda just announced a $10,000 ticket!!!
FOR 31mph over!!!!!


This is just excessive!



http://www.thenewspaper.com/news/19/1918.asp

Canada Introduces $10,000 Speeding Ticket
Ontario, Canada applies street racing penalties to motorists who are not racing anybody.

Ontario, Canada Premier Dalton McGuinty today announced that being caught driving 50km/h (31 MPH) over the speed limit will automatically trigger "street racing" penalties -- even if the accused motorist is driving alone on an otherwise empty road. The change in definition will, in effect, turn ordinary speeding into an offense that can carry a $10,000 (US $9305) fine and up to six months in jail, making it one of the most expensive traffic tickets in North America.

"If you choose to break the law, we consider you a threat to our public safety and you're going to face stiff penalties," McGuinty said in a statement.

In June, McGuinty cited the importance of combating the "organized crime" of street racing as he urged passage of the Safer Roads for a Safer Ontario Act which created the $10,000 penalty. The change in definition also means that the word of a police officer is all that it takes to confiscate a car and driver's license for at least seven days.

"There is no appeal from, or right to be heard before, a vehicle detention, driver's license suspension or vehicle impoundment under [the street racing] subsection," the Safer Roads Act states.

McGuinty also announced a proposal to hire 55 new traffic police officers and purchase a high-tech surveillance airplane in an attempt to rack up several of the expensive new fines.

You could save up while you're sitting in the clink for that 6 months. What do they pay prison laborers, like $.60 an hour?

Oh and if you actually took the time to read the article it states that you have to be convicted and the fines range from 2K to 10K.

Last time I was in BC they travelled to Seattle to street race. I thought it was hilarious. BUT there is absolutely no street racing going on in Vancouver. That doesn't stop anyone from blasting through the rockies on either trans Canada highway or crows nest pass; I know I did.

In Alberta it is 110kph. The roads where I lived were much more challenging to navigate. Imagine blasting through the mountains at that speed IF not higher.

On the highways there are photo cameras, police airplanes, helicopters, cars, and motorcycles. So speeding although people did was certainly a huge risk. Plus in the winter with snow drifts of at least 5ft no sane person would want to travel at high rates of speed.

I can understand though, it's very boring and dirty here. That's why I travel as fast as possible anywhere I go :laughing6
