There is Saanich Mayor Fred Haynes at it again, pushing one of his favourite pet projects which is to make the rest of the province a retirement community just like his. "reduced speeds will help fight climate change by making side roads safer and encouraging more people to get out of their cars and walk or cycle".

Wait, is that really that we can fight climate change by making the roads safer, or is it all about "encouraging" people to abandon their cars?

But hold on, the leader of the scooter capital of Canada, Oak Bay, says "widespread regional support for the idea suggests that many people are driving 35 km/h to 40 km/h on most residential streets anyway."

Make no mistake about what this is really all about for these bumbling ideologues. This is social engineering which if acted upon, is costly, unnecessary, and not justified by any objective data showing a problem needing a solution. This is the kind of law which is guaranteed to snare safe and reasonable drivers just to "encourage" people to get our of their cars.

"While there are numerous fines one can get on the road, there are few traffic tickets that come as a surprise to many people.

For example, most people know that texting and driving will land them with a penalty for distracted driving; however, not everyone realizes that distracted driving covers a much broader range of penalties than simply checking your phone."

@critiklthinking @timescolonist To your point Derek, notice the mayor of the scooter capital of Canada says most are driving 35 to 40 anyway. So what "problem" are they trying to address? Answer: none. It's a social statement. "Encourage" people out of their cars.
