The Canadian Government is in dire need of money. In Ontario, Canada Click for map, Premier Dalton McGuinty Open link in a new window announced that if you are caught speeding 31 mph (50 kph) over the speed limit, it will be considered that you were street racing, even if you're alone.

Getting caught street racing will set you back $10,000 (that US$ 9305), and serious jail time (up to 6 months). The new law also puts an enormous power in the hands of the Police, since all it'll take is the word of the officer that you were speeding.

The Safer Roads Act states "There is no appeal from, or right to be heard before, a vehicle detention, driver's license suspension or vehicle impoundment under the street racing subsection".

In order to make sure that they maximize the revenue they can generate from this new law, McGuinty proposes to hire 55 new traffic officers and buy a surveillance airplane. Judging by the costs, I'm quite sure that they have already established when they'll break even and start making a profit.
