Do you think speeding tickets are often nothing more than legalized extortion by The Man? For sure! And this YouTube poster from BC agrees with you.
Remember, CMG put together an article earlier this year that compared speeding ticket costs all across this country, province by province, and told you how much those performance awards will cost you in each jurisdiction. We didn’t get into the sense and nonsense of ticketing, but this YouTube vid does a good job of that.
Excellent video, well researched, very good rythm, entertaining, enlightening, I’m impressed, posted the link on other websites
Recently completed stretch from Winfield to Oyama. 6% grade with no runaway lane, no chainup area, and no brake inspection pullout. Total cost for the project is 80 million.
The bc government admits to 900 million for the winter Olympics. Factoring the government BS factor, the true cost is probably 3 to 4 billion. It was a great boost to our bobsled dealerships and cross country ski factories.
Really? I guess the independent auditors were all being paid off, eh?
Hauling snow by dumptruck at $10,000 a load, using skycranes at 5.000/ hour. You bet they are being paid off. Oh, and don’t forget the paid bloggers at $15.00 per hour.
The BC government is piss-ass broke. How else are they going to pay their thousands of goverment workers that otherwise couldnt get a job anywhere? What’s really funny is that the people in BC (Bring Cash) just put up with it. Glad I don’t live there.
We’re glad you don’t live here, too.
Chris Thompson deserves a lot of credit for this. That cannot have been a quick project – well researched, argued and delivered. What a star.
Politicians and their courtiers ( the presscort service) only care about scamming a few more pennies out of the cattle. Highways should be the number 1 priority.
Dang. That boy did a really good job. This video should be mandatory viewing for all legislatures nationwide.
