So the deal is that with each kmph over the limit, you will be charged $7.70. They’re moving from a fixed range rating to this new one in hopes that people will just slow down. These changes come into effect after the new year.
|Speeding||Current ticket amount*||New amount (Jan. 1, 2010)|
|10-12 km/h over the speed limit||$164.00||$177.50 – $202.75|
|13-15 km/h over||$190.80||$216 – $241.25|
|16-19 km/h over||$220.50||$253.50 – $292|
|20-34 km/h over||$278.00||$304.25 – $482.50|
|35-49 km/h over||$448.50||$494.75 – $673|
|50-99 km/h over||$619.00||$685.25 – $1,303.25|
|100-120 km/h over||$1,187.00||Determined in court|
|More than 120 km/h over||Determined in court||Determined in court|
If they were trying to just stop people from speeding, why not hike them up to $100 for every kmph over? It feels like the idea is to let people know they should only speed a little bit over, but not too much. The only people who would be against something like this are the ones who speed on a regular basis… which is what the system is trying to eliminate. Of course, that’s totally just a random opinion.
Stay safe this holiday season!
