Not sure if this has gone around or not, but everyone needs to sign this petition

I would even argue that increasing limits would benefit insurance companies

I agree with this movement. We need to get more support behind this.

petition won't do much, but emailing, calling or writing to your provincial parliamentarian will probably do more.

Oh wow, someone who is supposed to be arguing against your point realizes it is a good one and changes their view!

Love the jab on people not vaccinating, come onnnnnnnnn.

It's well known that the law enforcement agency and the legal system are the biggest hypocrites and a self fulfilling prophecy.

They can only fund themselves through traffic infraction fines.

your absolutely right.. your premiums would increase on your next renewal. the likely hood of someone claiming for serious bodily injury would increase with higher speed limits.

an increase of speed is really unprecedented, insurance companies would take a line of "better be safe than sorry" line. increase of speeds does not make the roads safer in any way so why would your premiums be decreased?

I'm guessing you didn't watch the video.... It is not unprecedented, and it is actually safer which is why it would benefit insurance companies

+1 Yup. You would hope that insurance companies would follow studies and stats and not "common beliefs". Sadly the general public believes everything the sensationalist media/politicians tell them instead of questioning what they're told. Science/studies should also be questioned, but they tend to hold up under scrutiny.
