Last April, British Columbia police tracked down a motorcycle driver for speeding. He had posted a YouTube video of himself speeding down a highway on Vancouver Island. The video showed him working his way between other vehicles at heart-stopping speeds of up to 300 km/h. Unfortunately for him, the 25-year-old motorist had multiple traffic violations on his record. Consequently, his motorcycle was seized, and he is now facing hefty fines as a result of his bad driving habits. Some people just never learn from their mistakes. Drivers pose health and safety risks to themselves, their passengers, and even innocent bystanders when they speed. In light of this, speeding tickets may seem minor difficulties. However, speeding can cause a lot of headaches.
Fines are not fineIf you drive along the highways of Ontario, you will notice signs painted in blue and yellow. These signs remind drivers just how costly it is to speed. If you get caught driving 50 km/h faster than the limit, you will face the following:
- A fine of almost $10,000
- Suspension of your roadside license
- Confiscation of your vehicle
