Canada To Restrict All Cars To 150km/h? (Bill C-319)
 
Quote:

This enactment amends the Motor Vehicle Safety Act to include prohibitions against the manufacture, importation, sale, lease, operation and release after repair of motor vehicles manufactured after January 1, 2010 if they are not equipped with a speed limiter that is engaged and set to a maximum speed that is not greater than 150 kilometres per hour.

thats too fast... i'd say limit it to a 110 km/h

No way! I say 90 km/h is much saver!
This way we call all fall asleep at the wheel and put the entire city into gridlock :)

I don't see why any car licensed for the road in this country should be able to go faster than 100, not 110. The maximum speed legally allowed on any of Canada's roads is 100. If they limit it to anything higher then it's just hot air. In the US there are still roads without speed limits, so 300kmh cars have a case. Not here.

The only real problem I have with this law is that the only people that are affected are those buying new cars (unless they make it mandatory to get your car modified to get licensed, and make all non-efi cars aren't road worthy).

I'd say this is just posturing. They know it'll never pass but some politician wants to either get his name in the papers or get his message out.

so funny they make it 150km/h so they still want to charge people with street racing law haha... what a cash grab.

Well street racing is 50 over. 100 in a 50 is street racing. Like I said to me, the goofiest part of this is that only new cars are affected. The retards that kill people in speeding crashes aren't driving brand new BMWs, but rag ass Civics.

All i know is this is 100% BULLSHIT. They NEED to raise speed limits to 120 and 130 between cities... and they need to enforce the left lane for passing only law. Would be much better to drive under such conditions.

AMG_POWER 07-01-2009 11:03 PM

oh and they need to check they statistics on guns and drugs on the streets instead... There are more problems going on in this city then just street racing.

What roads in the USA have NO speed limit (as in go 200kph and you won't get a ticket)?

okay, but in all seriousness, with the new laws in place, how many of you have gone faster then 150 km/h? Aren't cars supposed to be limited to 180 km/h right now?

Im to scared to go over 125, i cant afford that sort of ticket/penalty on my record. Even though my record is clean, i want it to stay that way.

that's some weak shit. At least nissan with the GT-R has tracks programmed into the GPS so when the car is at a track it takes the governor off. Oh well, just more reason for people to get a re-flash with performance software

UGH, this shit pisses me off. There are far more important issues the government should focus on.

AMG_POWER 07-02-2009 12:20 AM

I clicked 200km/h + last week. I am not kidding. I guess speed limiter is near 240km/h not 180
