Thats all fine and dandy for everyday driving, but what happens on a track day? Everyone will be bouncing off a fuel cut off at 150?

+1 Total BS - guess everyone will be doing a "work around". Cant imagine this bill going thru - it will take the gov't ability to fine people $10K for going over $150 on the hiways.

Bingo!I addressed this the last time he tried to get this bill through and he told me that he would consult with me on this.What a lying piece of crap he is!The last time I made sure he was bombarded with e-mails.He called me to thank me for the help in him receiving 2000 e-mails in a 12 hour period.

FUCKEN BS

I swear, I need to move out of this fucken province. its getting ridiculous. I also heard recently that there were talks about dropping the speed limit down 10 km/h on the highways. Making all highways 90 km/h. Speed limits should be raised 20 km/h, not lowered 10 km/h.

I don't think there is much diff these days between Lib and Conser

I just want an MP with half a brain that spends that half doing thing that are good for the country, not special interest groups that do not represent the country

Lo & behold,I had mail waiting for me when I got home from the Honorable Jim Karaygiannis proclaming his stewardship of bill c319(speed limiter).It is active and we need to fight this bill before it gets to Parliament.

Once again here is his e-mail.

jim@karygiannismp.com

and contact your local MP.

it's ok.... if this gets passed, it gives me a free ticket to test out the limits of my car on public roads...

ill get my ecu flashed and "de-limited".... and when the cops see me buzz by at 250 and pull me over, ill claim my car was "malfunctioning" as I thought it should have stopped me at 150. good luck proving that I flashed my ecu

Wow!

Good god! That's dangerous! Just think of it, in a passing situation you find yourself in a spot where you need to hit 165 to 175 KPH to keep yourself and others alive. No can do. Speed limiter! F'ing amazing!

But that aside, shouldn't this be called the "Create Unsafe Motoring Act"? By limiting what the driver can do you're setting up conditions that make motoring less safe. Not to mention what it does to those who want to enjoy the drag strip or the track.

I just hope the bozos elsewhere or here in the States don't latch on to this. I'm not sure this is a liberal/conservative thing though--there's plenty of idiots to go around. (We had a Conservative Republican down here who wanted us to go back to 55 MPH [90 KPH] on the highways just last year.) Stupid is stupid.

Maybe this MP should support legislation to keep stupid people from driving. That would keep him off the road at least.... I wish you the best of luck in blocking this ****weed's bill.

Unfortunatly,I live in the "idiots" riding and the majority of new drivers did not grow up here and have no real clue about the Art of Driving!Ride a bike and you really see how bad the driving really is around here.Very Scary!

What a crock. What's next? A maximum number of horsepower allowed on a vehicle?

I would be shocked if this bill was passed. I wonder why they wouldn't set the limiter to 110 kph. That is the fastest speed limit after all....

This has got to be the most fukin ridiculous thing I have ever heard

These new drivers and the other idiots who shouldnt be on the road are to blame.

I mean might as well buy a toyota yaris...which barely hits 150kph then a ferrari f430...which is 20 times the money.

Correct me if Im wrong but I have never ever heard of anything happening like this anywhere in the world
and in germany there arent speed limits on the autobahn....

But hey, if this is the case I'll probably sell the m3 and just buy a yaris

Maybe they should have legislation specifically targeted to bikes only!

+1, why on earth are they targeting 150kmph? what an arbitrary number. there are cars on the road that are relatively safe at 150 (i.e our m3s) and there are cars (scarily enough,certified) on the road that are plain unsafe at 150 (i.e. smart cars, hyundai accent etc...)

if their idea is to enforce speed limits by limiting vehicle speed and taking safe decision making out of the driver's hands, why aren't they targeting the maximum allowable speed on the roadway for 100kmph (in ontario)

By setting the limit at 150, you're telling me that 150kmph is an "allowable speed"... hopefully the OPP feels the same way when I set my cruise control at 150kmph on the 401 the next time I drive to montreal (hypothetically)

0 to 150 in 6 seconds would be my criteria for a new vehicle then.

I will email tomorrow.
