    On Sunday, I was driving from Fort McMurray to Edmonton. A Pontiac car with a Nova Scotia license plate passed me going about 125 km/hr. A little while later, I saw him pulled over by an RCMP officer. I was glad to see he got caught speeding.

    Unfortunately, two hours later, the same driver passed me again – still going about 125 km/hr. Speeding tickets just don’t seem to be a deterrent for some people!

      Hi Nicole:

      A person would tend to think that having seven people killed
      in a two vehicle head-on collision would be enough to slow the
      traffic down. Some motorists need to be using more common sense.

      I don’t understand why everything needs to be legislated to the
      ultimate rediculous extreme, to keep people’s minds on their
      driving, and keep their driving practices within their abililties.
