Reminder: New excessive speeding law starts Sept 20

If this is a repost, well,
I didn't see anything posted today on it, and it is in today's paper.

http://www.vancouversun.com/drivers+...713/story.html

Quote:
Anyone travelling 40 kilometres or more over the speed limit if caught will now face new impoundment rules that come into effect Sept. 20.

A charge of excessive speeding will trigger a mandatory seven-day impoundment for a first offence, a 30-day impoundment for a second offence, and 60 days for all subsequent speeding offences within two years.

The new impoundment rules are in addition to existing penalties which include a fine of $368 to $483, depending on how excessive the speed, three penalty points on a driver's license and an ICBC driver-risk premium of $320 per year for three years, over and above Auto plan insurance premiums.

And you can add on the impoundment fee, which can be very expensive depending how long you are impounded for.

Another retarded rule created. Look at the ban cell driving, I still see fucking people driving and talking on their cell phones.

Not like this will stop anyone from changing their driving habits.

It's simply more incentive not to stop. I'll say it again, fuck the law makers in this country, pure ignorance! My ZX10 is capable of being impounded on any highway in BC in 1st gear.

Did you read the article? Either 1000 or 10,000 people will learn the lesson really quickly when they lose their car for a week and are faced with > $1500 of fines/fees.

The cell phone law is working, I have RCMP friends that are enforcing it. Watch out for unmarked minivans.

Go back to BCStupidBikes. Did you know all the officer has to do is get your plate? You are legally required to identify the driver of your vehicle or face jail time. So they can just take your plate and meet you at home later.

The only ignorance is you. Take it to the track if you want to get the most out of your ZX10.

I recognize your username as the douchebag that posted so much useless garbage on that site that you got banned. Keep up the good work! Your opinion matters!

140-150 in a modern car on a highway is nothing and is easily done safely, on a bike it's a sneeze. This is yet another babysitting law that's coddling the lowest common denominators on our roads.

And I do take it to the track, thanks!

here's a simple solution

if you want to speed and get ticketed + fined + points + impounded then sure, go ahead.

if you don't, then just don't speed!

so simple! what's there to be furious about?

people will just sit there and bitch bitch bitch all day long.


would you rather have this "stupid" law OR have the government

a) put 110km/h governor on all the vehicles on the road (since the max speed limit is 100 anyways)

b) install GPS monitoring devices on all the vehicles so they can track how fast they are traveling at any time?


just don't speed. WOW is that so hard not to follow? what are you? 16? super excited to drive for the first time and need to impress your friends? -__-

/end rant

so do they impound your car on the spot? as in, you are only accused of excessive speeding, but not charged yet, but they still impound your car anyway?

Technically if you blow over 0.05 on the breatheralyzer you are accused of being DUI and have your car impounded. If the officer suspects you are street racing, they can impound your car. I would expect the same thing for this.

That being said, I can see this doing little to no change in the way people drive. Do you know how many people drive with no or a suspended liscence?
OR no insurance?

Just another cash cow just like the cell phone ban.

i personally think this is retarded... but like most laws were just gonna have to learn to live with it.

HOWEVER... if they're gonna keep stiffening speeding laws, how about re-assessing our speed limits in the first place. it should be a give and take relationship between government and the public, but it just seems like all the government wants to do is keep taking.

How about make driving tests harder and mandatory government performance driving lessons. Then we can raise the speed limit up and make our own Canadian Autobahn yayy. But that wont happen of course haha

agreed, these speed limits were created when teh 70's oil embargo hit, for fuel economy purposes (nothing to do with safety)

the modern car is economical at higher speeds than it ever was (not saying its not less economical at 120 than at 90, but the difference isn't what it was in teh 70s), and they're an AWFUL lot safer than they were

40 over with tehse stupidly low limits is NOT hard to do - coming from a brit (80mph on the motorway is accepted, law is 70), who has lived in the US (again 70mph on most motorways), i'm SICK of this kind of law making

LETS TEACH PEOPLE HOW TO DRIVE rather than ticketing those who drive at speeds that any other normal country would see as slow (120kmph is NOT fast or dangerous on many multiple lane A road equvalents (2 lane motorways) which are often 80kmph limits)

i seriously hate this government

Unfortunately, a lot of social "rules" take away from people using/requiring/practicing good, basic common sense. It really fucks up natural selection.

so beginning sept 20, the 120 i normally go on the highway is considered excessive speeding, so i guess i might as well go like 160, and make it worth it.

Common sense is no longer common, if it was we wouldn't need ridiculous negative-incentive laws like these.

great another gay homo ass law


fuck the law, laws are meant to be broken

paying $300-400 is no problem, but getting impounded for 7 days is seriously fucking ridiculous


they really need to revaluate the speed limite in this city, because its fucked.

every car nowadays are 300hp+, bigger brakes, summer tires seems to be standard. Cars no longer stop 200 feet, but 120 feet.

50km in city and 80km is seriously a joke

LOL at some of the comments in this thread.

Bigger brakes, better cars? It seems like I post this example every single time these speed limit discussions come up and people still can't grasp grade 10 physics.

How about braking distances, as an example?

The following vehicles will all stop shorter from 60mph to 0 than a Porsche 911 or Ferrari 430 can from 80mph to 0.

- Any minivan made today.
- Any cheap passenger car made today.
- Most pickup trucks and full size vans.

Yet I still see people making comments like "my sports car has the ability to handle speeds well above normal cars" or "modern cars are so much safer than when the rules were made". Sorry, you are wrong.

If you ask any driver of a Porsche or Ferrari they will all say that they can easily drive a mere 20mph (80 vs 60) over the limit and still maintain better control and a wider safety margin over "mere mortal cars". Many believe they can drive 30-40mph faster than a normal car.


I don't see why people complain about 40km/h being labelled as excessive. Does anyone think it's actually OK to run 90km/h in a 50km/h zone? Or 70 in a 30? If you drive like that you're a fucking idiot and deserve to be impounded.

IMO, 40 over a 50 zone is dangerous when there are pedestrians around, but 40 over highway speed (especially the new gay 80 limit on #1 highway) is just retarded, especially when the road is clear at night. Sounds like many people's cars are gonna get impounded on #1 highway at night lol...

this thread is pretty funny. I don't understand why people are in such a hurry to get places. a 30km stretch on the highway driven at 120km/h will get you there in 15 minutes. the same stretch driven at 90km/h (10 over the speed limit on Highway 1) will get you there in 20 minutes. Is it really that bad that you need to get to where you are going 5 minutes quicker...?

It's funny how so many people just say, screw the law, I'm just going to do it, then complain that these laws are there to make money. I'll be the first one to admit that I don't go the speed limit, On a highway, I'll usually do 15km/h or so over the limit, or the flow of traffic, depending on the conditions. But I think it's stupid to still chance it and excessively speed. But if you want to do it, go ahead - "push your car to the limit that manufacturers designed", because you have the big brakes and horsepower... have fun getting impounded as well!

so in a way you dont support excessive speed *neither do i

but u do agree the speed limite thats set right now is simply retarded. Hence why i can pretty much GURANTEE you no one follows the lame ass speed limite, why? becuz its gay and ridiculous


Everyone go with the FLOW of the traffic. Which is 10-20km more than speed limite, that pretty much just sumed it up how the limite is.
