for the Majority of cars are safer and can take higher speeds safely over a deacde ago
I now live all the way in the Quebec but lately I have often seen searches done on my site about what can a person do about bad cops and their false speeding, revenue generating tickets in Edmonton, and in Alberta.. what?? write to the politicians and news editors firstly, tell them why it is perverse for decades now in Alberta this has been a false police empire build scheme, police job preservation program..
15 YEARS IN ALBERTA AND I GOT LOADS OF CALGARY SPEEDING TICKETS, 3 IN A ROW FROM THE SAME COP, TWICE IN CANMORE ON THE SAME SPOT TOO, AND NEXT 15 YEARS IN QUEBEC I GOT NO TICKETS AT ALL. Why the difference?.. politcal bosses are different. Conservative vs Liberal.
More crap from the Alberta Police too.. Since January 2O08, RCMP and provincial sheriffs have issued more than 2,000 speeding tickets to people driving on Highway 63, including 363 tickets over the weekend. Political and labour leaders have been lobbying the Alberta government for years to twin the highway between Edmonton and the Fort McMurray area. While some work is underway, most of the money is being spent on highway work north of the oilsands capital. Bellows said the entire highway would be safe if motorists just obeyed the speed limit. “We are frustrated,” he said. “Just slow down and relax. You will get there safe.” Meanwhile, leadfoot drivers are also a problem on highways through Banff National Park. RCMP report that officers issued 115 speeding tickets over the weekend between Lake Louise and the Jasper National Park Boundary. In some cases drivers along Highway 93 were clocked going more than 60 km over the posted speed limit. ( Revenue generating ) Speed limits in the mountain parks are set with an eye toward preventing collisions with wildlife. ( and how often does that occur?) RCMP in the Peace River area said even when police warn motorists about speed traps some drivers continue to drive faster than the posted limit. ..
RCMP like to give speed tickets when you are leaving the park, not entering it too.. and I got 2 speeding tickets on the same spot in Canmore ten years apart too… and the second time I went to court and rightfully fought the dirty RCMP too.
In reality the too often self serving, money hungry, promotional and empire oriented police, and their superiors, bad justice ministers, bad politicians really do not care about the citizens good welfare but only their own..
Honking, fist-shaking, screaming, obnoxious drivers: the symptoms of road rage. Insurance Corporation of British Columbia Psychologist John Vavrik, who studies driving behaviour for ICBC, says road rage can be better understood as “aggressive driving spectrum disorder.” According to Vavrik, road rage can take many forms. “There’s not a clean definition of it. It’s basically an aggressive act aimed at hurting somebody or sending a message to somebody,” Vavrik said. “The people most at risk of engaging in these behaviours are the least likely to control their behaviour,” he said. “They have low emotional intelligence. They don’t have the tools or skills or strategy to manage their emotions. “In those extreme cases, we’re talking about sociopathic issues. The driver’s a walking time bomb.” According to Vavrik, “road-ragers” are generally underachievers, individuals who lack assertiveness and control, and do not have the status in life they desire. He said the “depersonalized space” of a vehicle is a trigger to road rage, as is an unexpected traffic delay, such as that caused by a slow driver, or being stuck behind an idle bus.
UK ” official statistics showed that only five per cent of crashes are caused by drivers breaking the speed limit. Drivers who let their attention wander cause more than six times as many accidents.” Driver error accounted for 66 per cent of accidents.. and add the road rage, impaired, drunk drivers, bad poorly maintained vehicles to that too .. Most reasonable and reasoning people have seen the folly of speed cameras for decades now too.
Now I have said it for over 3 decades in wrting to all too so Call it what you want but it is not about public safety, for it is a self employment, empire building, false money grab, revenue generation, hidden taxes.. for if the cops, the mad RCMP were now really worried about public safety THEY WOULD FIRSTLY ARREST THEIR OWN KIND, THE BAD COPS WHO OFTEN DRIVE HOME DRUNK AFTER WORK, COMING HOME FROM THE POLICE TAVERN, and they would ALSO go after the people who drive reckless, fail to stop at the stop signs, traffic stop lights, and the impaired drunken drivers, the unsafe cars whose brakes are squealing cause they need to be repaired.. etc.,,
” A blatant tax on the motorist” said Cllr. Peter Greenhalgh, in charge of highways, transport and strategic planning in the town, he added
“Isn’t it better to have a road that is designed to be safe from the start, rather than sticking a camera there to catch people who may or may not be driving dangerously? We treat road safety very, very seriously but we pay about £400,000 a year to the road safety partnership – money which goes straight into the Government’s pockets.
Almost half of motorists do not think speed cameras improve road safety according to new survey results from whatcar.com.
For fatal accidents the most frequently reported contributory factor was loss of control, which was involved in 35 per cent of road deaths. Failure to look properly was the most frequently reported contributory factor and was involved in 32 per cent of all injury accidents. Five of the six most frequently reported contributory factors were some kind of driver or rider error or reaction.
How many cops in Alberta are arrested annually for drunk driving coming home after work from being at the Police Tavern too.
The money hungry Conservatives in Alberta, the Calgary and the Edmonton Police forces and the Liberals in Ontario they can all learn from this
A study of the figures in the British Medical Journal showed a gap between police and hospital data showed a wide divergence in these figures said one of the authors of the article, Mike Gill, professor of public health at Surrey University. The Police are known to lie, and they try to please their political bosses , to get a raise by generating revenue from traffic tickets.
The survey of the Canadian vital statistics database, made up of information from death certificates, shows that 97,964 people were killed in motor vehicle accidents during the past quarter-century. However, the annual number of deaths dropped 52 per cent to 2,875 in 2004 from 5,933 in 1979.
Nearly three-quarters of those killed in these accidents were male, and motorists at either end of the age spectrum had higher-than-average death rates.
Pedestrians accounted for 12 per cent of motor vehicle deaths, followed by motorcyclists and drivers of all-terrain and other off-road vehicles.
Elderly pedestrians were also found to be more than three times likelier than the general population to be killed in motor vehicle accidents. The study does not explain why.
Rural roads proved particularly treacherous for drivers. Sixty-two per cent of fatal collisions in 2004 took place in rural areas.
Yukon had the highest death rate at 16.4 deaths per 100,000 people. Newfoundland and Labrador and Ontario were the only two provinces and territories reporting a death rate lower than the national average of nine for every 100,000 people.
The study notes that while death rates have fallen, the ubiquitous use of cell phones and BlackBerrys while driving pose a danger to drivers.
Now we know that more people have accident due to road rage, impaired driving, driving under the influence of drugs, alcohol over speeding too and we still do need to review how much time and resources do the police deal with that firstly? ”
Road rage is a relatively serious act; it can be seen as a violation of human and property rights , an endangerment of other’s personal well being, security. Road rage is easy to convict, merely get a video camera and record the driving.. a video camera have been used successfuly on bad cops, like the RCMP.
Note this important brief introduction to road safety .. Yes you always do have to drive safely, in control, not impaired as well and yes there are many, many different factors that now can cause a vehicular, automotive accident, including but not limited to the actual daily road conditions, even the type of tires you have .. for it is a fact that good tires lead to a safer drive, and so does a 4 wheel drive. Next when you start to first drive at any day do first immediately test the road condition by coming to a planned sudden stop , and see firsthand how your car reacts accordingly.. then next do use this experience to set how you will drive the rest of the day too. And no matter what car, or tires you have, or who is the driver, if you do hit a patch of black ice, due clearly to the failure of others, such as the Governments, municipalities, to apply salt and gravel on the icy / snowy road, to falsely try to save money here, it can be very, very hazardous now too. Give them a fine, ticket, they firstly do deserve it too.
Now hypothetical if you do not drive at all you are less likely to have an accident, assuming another driver does not hit you while walking..

Some Ostrich cop lovers like to remain in the dark as to how bad the cops now really are too.. well many more see the truth about the cops..
Too many COPS, persons distort the LAW. it’s meaning still too. Unacceptable.
The specific Laws are created for a reason and given a certain set of conditions and circumstances. When the circumstances or situation are not present then the law is basically not applicable. (2 Cor 3:6 KJV) for the letter killeth, but the spirit giveth life.
WE ARE NOT TO WALK “Not of works, lest any man should boast.” Ephesians 5:9
Jude 18-19 “”How that they told you there should be mockers in the last time, who should walk after their own ungodly lusts. These be they who separate themselves, sensual, having not the Spirit.”
Here is what I know for sure in Canada proper policing, management , supervision human rights commissions are a real fact of life, society, in schools, life, in churches, governments, commerce, institutions, civil and public services, professional services too, and elsewhere, even on the net, for you will always have those 30 percent at least of the persons who will try to cheat, lie , steal, bend the rules, falsely believe they are above the laws, Self regulation alone is too often pretentious, farcical, often not applied as well. That applies especially to the professionals, civil and public services, police, municipalities, politicians now as well..
These cop lovers must have been living in the dark ages still too even in Alberta? while thousands of persons do demand the rightful dismantling of the RCMP even.. look here here is what the news media says about the RCMP today.. No one can deny the many bad experiences people do have with the RCMP, Alberta cops.. I too now have dozens of posts about the bad RCMP read often by others too.. I have been rightfully helping the federal and provincial legislators to cut the bad police budgets for decades now too.
“The B.C. government’s partnership with the RCMP has taken another hit with the revelation that an investigator of the gang killing of six people in Surrey has been reassigned because of his relationship with a witness in the case. Public Safety Minister Kash Heed said Wednesday he learned about the internal investigation of the unidentified RCMP officer from media reports Tuesday, and he was “not happy” about either the news or the timing. “This is an issue that has been brewing for over a month, and I was not informed of it,” Heed said. “If in fact those allegations are proven, it’s completely unacceptable as far as I’m concerned.” The RCMP investigator was part of the team assigned to the murder of six people in a high-rise apartment in Surrey on Oct. 19, 2007. After reports he had been restricted to desk duties while an internal probe is conducted, the RCMP issued a statement that said the witness in question has not provided evidence used in charges related to the Surrey killings. Heed said he found both the investigation and the lack of notification “disturbing” and “troubling” as the B.C. government begins formal negotiations to extend its policing contract with the RCMP when it expires in 2012. The B.C. government has moved to toughen civilian oversight of city police forces, but the RCMP continues to police most of the province through municipal contracts and it has its own federal public complaint and oversight procedures. Heed said B.C. is taking the lead among provinces in negotiating a new police services contract with the RCMP, because the majority of Canada’s RCMP officers now work in B.C. Asked if he is now considering setting up a provincial force as Ontario and Quebec have, he said he remains confident an acceptable deal can be reached with the RCMP. “Our government’s goal is to have the most accountable, effective and transparent police service for all of British Columbia, regardless of the colour of the uniform,” Heed said.”
Surrey 6 allegation lowers RCMP morale CBC.ca RCMP in Metro Vancouver acknowledge staff morale has suffered following the revelation a senior investigator on the notorious Surrey Six homicide investigation is himself under investigation.The officer, a member of the regional homicide investigation team, was assigned to desk duty after an allegation came to light in December that he was carrying on an inappropriate relationship with a potential witness in the case.- The RCMP have been under fire in BC in recent years after incidents involving the use of stun guns, deaths in custody, and drinking and driving.
“A senior British Columbia Mountie says the province’s solicitor general should have been told about allegations that an investigator in the Surrey Six case had an inappropriate relationship with a witness, but cannot explain why the information was not passed on to the cabinet member in charge of policing.“He should have been informed. I can’t say why that wasn’t done,” Chief Superintendent Janice Armstrong said , noting allegations of the relationship involving a member of the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team (IHIT) were first raised in early December 2009Mike Farnworh, the NDP critic for the solicitor general, said he found it odd that Mr. Heed was not brought into the loop on the situation.“I would think he would have been made aware that this was taking place,” said Mr. Farnworth.The failure to do so, he said, “probably says a lot about the government. They have been out of touch and out of the loop on a lot of issues.” http://www.theglobeandmail.com/news/national/british-columbia/bc-solicitor-general-left-in-the-dark-about-surrey-six-scandal/article1446399/
What should not come as a surprise to anyone in Canada is how many of the cops still do drink and drive drunk next still.. RCMP included, and why so many cops do not prosecute any other drunk drivers even all year.. and what else in the unacceptable perversties?
Decades and decades later the police are still covering up for their own again and again but the police are not the only bad professionals who do this these days as well, so do the Hospitals, doctors, nurses, civil and public servants, governments…
