Ontario Speeding Tickets

Speeding tickets are written every day but the problem never seems to go away.

Provincial and municipal governments need to look at other ways to control the speed of motor vehicles, and continually sending the police to do speed enforcement has not solved this problem.

The government would have you believe the scourge of speeding is causing the thousands of accidents in Ontario each year. So why has little has been done in regards to traffic design, traffic calming and to curb the manufacture of motor vehicles with the ability to travel well in excess of speed limits.

Why does the government licence vehicles that can travel over 160km/h on pubic roads? Why would the government not insist that motor vehicle have speed limiters like large trucks now have?

Why are traffic calming initiatives not implemented within subdivisions and around schools and public facilities?

Speed enforcement for the most part is done on clear, straight wide open roadways and not around school zones, parks and residential areas.

Or does government appreciate the millions of dollars in revenue that speed enforcement earns.

Ontario police forces issue thousands of speeding tickets each year, the government would have you believe that speeding is the underlying factor in road safety.

Although speed is a factor in some accidents, most accidents occur because the driver made a driving error or just wasn't paying enough attention to their driving.

Safe Speeds and Driving

So is speeding causing all of the accidents, or is there a wider problem of driver error and carelessness?

This website is for those who insist on driving safely but were caught driving over the legal limit and given a speeding ticket.

For those who protest that insurance companies can charge exorbitant fees just because your driving record has a conviction for being 15km/h over the limit.

We do not promote driving the public roads at excessive speeds, and irresponsible drivers should face a stiffer penalty than just a monetary fine, but driving 20km/h over the speed limit should not be increasing your insurance thousands of dollars per year.
