"Shortly thereafter, however, Kingston Police Sgt. Steve Koopman tweeted a photograph of a vehicle parked with a barely discernible license plate. “This was taken off duty in a relatively well-lit parking lot with my headlights on. Did anyone consult with police before designing and manufacturing the new Ontario licence plates? They’re virtually unreadable at night.” His was the first of many complaints. The City of Toronto reported that new licence plates “pose visibility challenges to both photo radar devices and red-light cameras.”

What followed was the three stages of messing up licence plate design.

First there was denial: Minister of Government and Consumer Services Lisa Thompson claimed the plates, which are made by 3M Canada, were “actually very readable.”

Then bargaining: A day later she admitted there were problems. The Premier’s office issued a statement saying that “The Government of Ontario expects 3M to stand by their product.” Which is strange because no one was saying the new plates are hard to stand beside; they were saying that under certain conditions they look like a blue blur.

Finally, there was acceptance “Are the licence plates a problem? Absolutely," said House Leader Paul Calandra.

We now have “Plategate.”"

“The Bavarian sister party of Chancellor Angela Merkel’s Christian Democrats, the CSU, has been lobbying hard against speed limits. As a result, a bill last year to introduce a nationwide speed limit failed to get enough votes in the lower house of parliament. Bavaria is home to the BMW and Audi brands.”

You are the path of least resistance.

Tucker: “You’re describing how a predator looks at dinner, you’re not worth eating, but you are. That's how government looks at citizens. “

“If you go to Forrest Lawn Drive Mortuary, on one side of the street there are people here illegally selling flowers with no permits with no anything going up to visit dead nanna, on the other side of the street there's a cop with a radar gun waiting for soccer moms who are going 42 MPH in a 35 (mph), to write them up, the cop is not interested on what's going on on the other side of the street which is illegal behaviour because they don’t have any money or documentation and their not going to cut the court a check, on the this side of the street the soccer mom has a checking account and they’re going to ring her up.”

"People are vandalizing and even stealing new photo radar cameras that are a key part of Toronto’s campaign to slow motorists and help eliminate pedestrian and cyclist deaths.

Fifty “automated speed enforcement” cameras have now been installed near schools across Toronto, part of the Vision Zero campaign to see if they slow drivers and help stop an alarming number of road deaths.

But four of the hulking boxes, each weighing 365 kilograms and containing cameras and software to record licence plates of speeding vehicles, were mysteriously hauled away between late December and early January, city spokesperson Hakeem Muhammad told the Star."
