Highway 97 North of Prince George and highway 29 between Chetwynd and Hudson's Hope is very very nice (and very empty)

So 40km/h? so if i got 135km/h its not excessive speeding? Cool.

FYI 110km/h governer will NEVER happen here. If it does its the end of motoring as we know it. Why not just sell everyone smart cars cause having that 600hp vette aint gona be worth shit then.

The 5 and 97 have sections that are 110, and maybe the 3?

I did wonder why the 5 is 110 while everything west of Hope is only 100. Still, 110 in some places is an improvement from 100 in Ontario.

I do 100km in the city all the time in a DD 4 banger with like 100hp. The crazy part is? I'm not even flooring it. Nothing more than 50% gas.

How often do you see someone doing 40km/h over the limit? Especially in the city?

A German couple approached me while I was parking on my motorcycle in a parking lot, they wanted to know what it took to get a license. I told them, $15 for a Q&A then I'm allowed to ride with a supervisor. Then $0 for 5 min parking lot skills test and I'm allowed to ride anywhere just not at night or with a passenger. Then another $50 and a 30 min road test and I'm done.

Their faces were priceless. They were stunned it was so easy and cheap and immediately wanted to buy bikes and get licensed.

Slow down.

I take Oak daily at 7am when there is no traffic and 3 wide open lanes. I still cannot justify >= 100 kmph. I'm no angel, I'll do 80-90, yet if the lights change anything faster I cannot stop in time - and there are too many red light cameras.

Yes, it is. If people payed attention to what they were doing and that massive ICBC surplus went towards mandatory driver education rather than imposing fines to just make themselves MORE money..........

That sucks to see and I'm sorry you had to witness it. However, why was someone trying to jaywalk across a highway at 2am and be unable to see and hear oncoming vehicles? That's just natural selection at it's finest.

If I was a troll I'd already have another account and be back. Any other unintelligent argument you'd like to put forward?

My attack was justified, you are on that site and share the same stupid opinions.

Then please campaign for increased driver education. Until driver education changes we are stuck with laws that consider the quality of drivers on the road.

Do you know how much paperwork is involved in making these fines stick? The amount of the fine doesn't even cover the officer's time, nevermind that he's now busy impounding your car rather than patrolling.

Another ignorant argument from the uniformed. Tell BCStupidBikes I say "hi" and please go back, at least there you'll find the majority of members agree with your ignorant stance. I'm happy to see a lot of intelligent posts here stating excessive speeding is dumb.

The insurance premium ($320 DRP for 3 years) is another topic, perhaps take a read of the ICBC discount thread on BCSB and see how many are actually defending ICBC's low rates compared to other provinces before you criticize this. You might even be in the minority on BCSB, which only highlights how out to lunch you are when even they don't share your opinion.

Like most of the unitelligent people of BCStupidBikes you missed the point and focused on the drama queen exception.

40 over is 90-100 on many city streets, and as ericthehalfbee points out, increases your stopping distance considerably. Yet you'd know this, cause bike stopping distance increases a lot with speed. The problem isn't the highway, it is the people like Death2Theft who think 100 kmph on city streets is reasonable

Why can't I thank JD13 hell I cant even thank Taylor192 ethier? I see more accidents caused by lack of skill or unawareness of others, rather then speeding. There are alot of people who aren't confident drivers, and if your not confident in yourself your going to end up in a accident. I think we need tougher drivers examinations, mabye include some stunt tests or something (like hard braking and avoiding obstacles).

I'd be a hypocrite if I defended speeding. I admit to it, and admit it is wrong. I don't excessive speed cause I didn't want the $320 DRP, nor do I want the new impound.

Meanwhile you ignorantly defend speeding, and even encourage breaking the law:

It is funny how this is the typical first post in any thread on traffic laws on BCStupidBikes. Real smart, run from the law, see what happens.

no, no one can thank JD



people are mad at the law, thats why they say stupid shit like fuck the law. Inside everyone's heart you know some of the laws are pretty fucked up and no one can agree on it.


speed limite is low on the highway, car thieves getting slap on the wrist for stealing or trespassing another man's property. Home invaders can sue you if you rough them up, ICBC screws you over when you are not at fault etc
just because its the law, it doesnt mean it serves its justice.

Back on topic: What if I insist that there was an error in judgment and dispute the ticket? habeas corpus anybody?

I don't expect the court of BC to refund my impound fees and my loss of use of vehicle at the end of a case getting thrown out? WTF? Another unconstitutional law that people need to step up and contest, along with the VI process, yo!

Half the time I spend on HWY1 is driving 10-20kmh because of traffic lol..... I'm not a fast driver... I usually stick to 80kmh on the HWY and 60kmh in the city... I wasn't always a slow driver though.

When I was 17, and just got my N, I drove super fast everywhere, didn't give a fuck, like everyone else I was invincible.... One night in mommys Lexus I was pulled over doing 120 in a 30 zone. The cop explained my $1600 in fines (No licence on me, no N, excessive speeding, driving without care, construction zone), also set a court date for me, and told me I had to have the car towed home and I would lose my licence for 6 months to a year.... So I was straight freaked out, basically in tears, How was I suppose to drive to school/work. My parents would disown me... He then started asking about school and what not, and eventually brought the ticket up for me to sign.... which was $90. I asked him what it was about. And he told me that he was just like me when he was young, said to stay in school, and next time put my 'N' on. Obviously there wouldn't be a next time, and I've been driving very safely ever since (2.5 years).

Point is, if I was slapped with huge money fines, the entire time I would be paying them off, without a car, without school, I would just get more and more frusterated, digging myself into a hole, I couldn't even imagine missing my first year of university. I would probably not have learned my lesson, and just become pissed at all the police. But this cop was different, the way he dealt with me completely changed my driving habits....

Sorry for cool story

glad to hear your driving experience has changed thanks to the decent cop who gave you a 2nd change for you to improve




but damn that would've been a very expensive ticket for you to pay off if he did give you that ticket
