    Cops ticketing on the sea-to-sky

    I was caught in a laser speed trap on the nice double-lane road just past the ferry terminal in horseshoe bay. Just letting you know, because I thought there were never cops on that stretch. I pulled in after another bike, and as i was leaving, he pulled over 3 more bikes. Busy road for ticketing!

    Also, the officer told me he had a guy doing 210 km/h and he lost his license (class 5) for 1 year! I'm very lucky he didn't catch me a few turns earlier!

    I didn't know you can lose your license for a year from speeding, but now i do, and so do you. Might be time for some of us to make changes.

    I thought every body in the world knew not to speed on the S2S. I guess not.

    well excessive speeding is called reckless driving so yea you can get your licence taken away but I was surprised to learn last week that going 30mph over the speed limit will instantly land you in jail in the states for 2 days. Luckily, I wasn't caught at 90 in a 60 zone.

    Im talking about the newer 2 lane section only. I didn't even realize there was a safe spot to pull over.

    I was in whistler this weekend, first time in about 8 months, those roads are getting too tempting. Such nice fast winding roads.

    I always believe what cops say, because they never lie.

    Dam I ride that stretch of road all the time, and this is the first time I've even seen a cop there. Maybe my hours are different than theirs.

    That road is good for nothing.

    There is always more bacon on that road then a French mans breakfast.
