TORONTO, Ont. — The number of Ontario drivers facing roadside licence suspensions and vehicle impoundments has escalated to 863 since Ontarios tough new speeding law came into effect last month.
According to a report in todays Toronto Star, about 38 drivers are charged under the new law each day. Sgt. Cam Woolley told the Star the message appears to be getting through to motorists.
“Its been probably one of the most successful pieces of legislation in traffic,” Woolley told the Star. “I think were seeing a real shift in the public attitude to this, and the people who are late to this are in for a big surprise.”
Under the law, 10-year suspensions can be doled out for a second conviction.
