The pressure to maintain the speed limit status quo came from many groups with their own perspectives (BC Trucking Assn, RCMP, Chiefs of Police, Ministry of AG etc). Some prefer to maintain highway speed limit hypocrisy based on long held beliefs that have been disproven. Either way, the back of their arguments has been broken repeatedly and it's our (SENSE BC) intention to see the mindset change right across the country. Driving / riding with purpose and proper lane discipline will go a long way in making roads safer (along with better training). Here's one radio host who said some things about us and here is how I handled it. Frank Stanford editorial rebuttal.
