I'm not expecting the LEOs on here to necessarily justify policies they don't create, but I am interested in any insight from those who work inside the system.
If traffic laws (especially speed limits) are supposedly set and enforced purely to enhance public safety, why is enforcement at it's peak on sunny, dry days with good visibility, arguably the safest road conditions, rather than in poor visibilty, rain, snow, etc when the consequences of poor driving and speed are much higher? I only seem to see the IRSU out in force on gorgeous days.
The cynical answer would be of course is it's easier, and generates more revenue. I'm hoping this isn't the case. If it is true, how do LEO's feel about police departments, ICBC, and various levels of government being less than forthright about their revenue generation role?
