    That's 100 mph on a divided highway that was built for speed. In the 70s and 80s if people were charged $2400.00 everytime we drove 100mph we'd still be paying the fines and no one would have a license. You know I'm right. Someone came up with an arbitrary number for a speed sign regardless of conditions, road, vehicle or driver. Just pass out the fines. People wonder why the RCMP can't investigate personal or property crimes? Follow the money. Investigating crime takes time, skill and money. Driving around the highway giving out $2400.00 fines is a quick, easy source of revenue. It's another tax, pure and simple.
