Speeding tickets are written every day, but for government after decades of police enforcement the perceived problem hasn't changed.
Government needs to look at other ways to control speeding motor vehicles. Continually sending the police to do speed enforcement has not solved this problem.
So why has so little has been done in regards to traffic design, traffic calming and 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?
- Why don't all vehicles 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.
Ontario police officers issue thousands of tickets each year, and the government would have you believe that speeding is the #1 factor in road safety.
Although speed is a factor in some accidents, most accidents occur because the driver made a driving error, driving without due care and attention (careless driving) turns not make in safety or failing to yield situations.
