Read this on the internet today when I was looking at speeding ticket prices. This should make you slow down if you live in Ontario....

From MSN:
"Many a fortune has been lost car racing. But since 2007, that old adage has applied to Ontario street racers, too. Initially imposed to combat what the government said was the "organized crime" of street racing, anyone caught driving 50 km/h over the speed limit in the Canadian province -- even if the driver is in the only car on a back road -- can be fined $10,000, have their car impounded on the spot, and spend up to six months in jail -- making it one of the most expensive speeding tickets in North America. Worse yet, there is no right to appeal or to be heard in a court. Like the Sheriff Buford T. Justice character from the Smokey and the Bandit movies, if you're caught driving 50 km/h or more above the speed limit, Ontario police officers are the judge and the jury at the side of the road."

I wonder if you are passing someone on a single lane highway if that counts....

Tell us about it, Street Racing law 50km over is unjust.
Guilty before even you go to court, dont agree with driving 50km+ over the limit
but everyone should have their day in court first before sentencing.
