It's been almost a month since the new law kicked in, and Fantino said today that he can't believe so many drivers – about 1,060 so far – have been caught speeding more than 50 kilometres an hour over the limit.I find it hard to believe that Fantino can't believe that more speed traps yield more fine revenue. Why stop at 30 kilometres over the limit? Zero tolerance is the only way to ensure public safety. You have a right to retain your vehicle so long as you strictly obey state laws.
Drivers exceeding that threshold face harsh penalties, including a minimum fine of $2,000 and a weeklong licence suspension.
Police also seize their vehicles.
Fantino says he now regrets not setting the speeding threshold at 30 kilometres an hour over the limit.
