Correct me if i'm wrong but I think the car in the left lane would get a ticket because you are supposed to use the left lane for passing only even if you are not exceeding the speed limit.

thats my thought too but tying up 3 lane out of 4 is good enough

From now on I will drive only at speed limit so please don't get pissy on me if you're behind me on the hwy k
You can swerve around me dangerously to cut me off but please, no silly highbeams, honking and tailgating. Thank you.

This 'dangerous' stuff is getting boring. I think that Ontario's MPPs should just make a law saying that dangerous things are not allowed. While they are at it they might as well make a law saying that dying is illegal and that if anyone dies then the Government can confiscate all their belongings.....

I suppose it's our own fault. We don't hold these Government types accountable.... Most Canadians roll over and play dead and the ones that don't get hammered into submission.

OPP is basically just getting trained by the folks at our southern border who have nothing better do and make easy money off of people with radars supplied by the insurance companies. It is all a scam. If they were too concerned, why don;t they put cameras like Europe and Insurance companies can never find out that you got a ticket... I am surprised more people don't question picketing of cops.

The worst is the speed limit of 100 km/h on a highway like 407 that no one follows and never will. It is just all a scam and please don;t give me a lesson about safe driving. There is a big difference between reckless driving and driving a car that can handle 150 or 160 km/h with ease. This is not 1950!
