Hellicopter Cops in Toronto?



not sure if I spelled it right or wrong(Hellicopter??)

anyway, just saw on the paper today that Toronto police is using the Hellicopter to catch speeding cars, anyone has ever seen them on the air or..................ever been caught??....

btw, they don't catch ppl from the air, they chk ppl from the air and call up the ground unit to bust them..........

(not sure if it's true.............or just the cops trying to scare ppl.. Also from what I heard, they only have one hellicopter, and it costs them $1000 a day to do the mission................if it's true, then they r either just scaring ppl or wasting our taxes money??)

I see that helicopter refueling all the time at the local airport here (just north of Newmarket on hwy 11).

The use markers painted on the roads to gauge your speed. From what I've been told, if you're not on a road without those markers, you can't get a speeding ticket. Although that wouldn't stop them from radio'ing a cruiser, or giving you a wreckless ticket.

It was supposedly reduced from 30Km over.. BULLSHIT!! when cops are bored they'll pull you over for any reason.. especially if they are young male cops and you have a girl/girls in your car.. man I know cops that pull chicks over just to hit on them.. go to Crocodile Rock in downtown Toronto on a wednesday night to see what cops are REALLY like.
