I would like to see these people heavily fined, as they're blatantly ignoring laws that could have very severe repercussions.
Absolutely! That was the main point, is that traffic enforcement should have absolutely nothing to do with revenue collection. That's why we have the CRA(or IRS down south). We don't need a revenue collection agency out collecting a speed tax. Rules of the road were designed for 2 purposes. 1. To ensure people can feel safe on the road, and 2. To maintain steady traffic flow. Ticketing based on a speed limit directly opposes those 2 purposes, because speeding has been proven time and time again to not be a factor in causation of accidents. And speed limits directly hinder smooth traffic flow.
