    You are very correct with your point about 1 km over the posted limit being speeding. Truthfully, it is not "Speeding" as the large contributing factor. It is "Speed" That is usually combined with other factors, most often road, weather and visibility conditions. Of course impairment and distracted driving are also combined with this. "Speed" can be a contributing factor even though the vehicle is doing under the speed limit.

    So to jump on the band wagon and start hammering people for exceeding the speed limit because ICBC or a government ministry says too many collisions are being cause by speed in simply wrong. Traffic enforcement needs to be focused on what history has shown to be the real cause of collisions in a particular area and focus enforcement tactics on those factors. Most often, by my experience, it has been erratic driving, drive without due care and attention, or reasonable care and consideration, distracted driving, follow too close, and the absolute largest factor in a metro environment, running yellow lights.


    I rode the bike to Cycle Gear in Bellingham yesterday. The assistant manager there, who knows I live in Metro Van, mentioned he had driven to Whistler with his wife a month ago, and had almost been taken out 3 times between North Van and Squamish. I apologized, and told him, IMO, that car/truck drivers in Vancouver area are the worst, by far, in the western world. He agreed. I told him other than commuting, I do most of my motorcycle pleasure riding in Washington state. He understood why.

    99% ticket is just rude sikorsky.
    i'm around 30% warning on about 10 dead to rights speeding interviews. That includes 2 excessives, so closer to 40% warning where officer discretion was an option..

    Where is the rest of BCSB at?

    it was hard to remember all of the roadside chats over the years. I wish icbc would show you lifetime achievement stats, but they only go back 5 years

    That's 99% of the people I stop, not 99% of the infractions I see. If I stopped everyone breaking the law while driving, I would never make it more than 3 blocks from the Detachment! That's where the officer discretion comes in ....... you need to have raised a lot of concern in my eyes in order to get stopped.

    having heard of Sikorsky's riding exploits I can say with confidence that this "level of concern" is rather high. high enough in fact that even steve should be able to limbo under that bar.
