Top 10 des contraventions pour excès de vitesse au Canada

Comment se voir attribuer 42 points de démérite

 

B1798BCFB0DF42764314847752C013.jpg

 

Le conducteur d'un VUS BMW croyait sans doute pouvoir faire un excès de vitesse à 3 heures du matin sur l'Autoroute Ville-Marie, à Montréal, en février 2011. Le véhicule a été surpris à rouler à 240 km/h dans une zone de 70. Bien que la vitesse ne constitue pas le record canadien en la matière, les pénalités imposées l'ont été.

 

En plus d'une amende de 2598 $, le conducteur a vu son permis suspendu pour six mois et a reçu le record de 42 points de démérite.

Vielle nouvelle :P

 

Le pire chose dans l'histoire, c'est que le BM en question n'appartient pas au conducteur, qui l'avait en posession parce qu'il travaillait comme valet. C'est presque du vol...

 

42 points d'inaptitude, LOL, la limite est 15, donc permis suspendu (27 points restants), apres 6 mois c'est re-active, mais encore suspendu (12 points) pour un autre 6 mois, et la, apres tu recois le permis et... il y a deja 12 points dessus et ta facture d'assurance-auto va etre plus haut que le PIB de plusieurs nations :rotfl:

 

Pour l'exces de vitesse l'amende est vraiment sale (amandes salees?) mais en considerant que la voiture supposait etre stationne c'est relativement juste...

How can you suspend someones license for 6 months, yet they lost 42 points? I just wish on certain nights and between certain times you could speed on the highway. There has been a few times I was on the 20 at like 2 am and no one was around.

 

One thing I never drove at 240 km/h it must be scary as hell.

They must have not read it properly, like I said ^^^ he gets his license suspended for 6 months, but when it comes back, it is suspended immediately again :rotfl:

 

240 is comfortable when your car is nice. But even at 3 AM on the 720 it is really fast, that road is not well designed for such speed and there is always relatively high traffic. You also get the issue of drunks and other fools at that time (like the woman who drove backwards on one of the ramps and killed herself...) On most of the "100 km/h" highways around then I don't see an issue especially at that time.

Maybe we should just let drivers do as they do already and allow them to make reasonable decisions about their velocity without unjust punishment for what are trivial and arbitrary administrative rules. We used to in Quebec officially, and unofficially as well until relatively recently. Even a couple of years ago when the SQ was on "pressure tactic" and didn't write any speeding tickets, was a fun time. The rate of accidents in Quebec went down that summer! I think the experience around the world conclusively (Germany, Australia, Montana, Quebec (1956), France (1973?) & England (1967) when they adopted limits...) shows that the speed-limit concept in open areas has little to no effect on road safety.

Maybe we should legalize murders to lower the murder rates in Québec

I find it a bizarre law. Have your license taken away 6 months and after have it taken away again. How about just take it away for 3-6 years from the start?

 

Si tu rentre dans quelqu'un qui roule à 90 km/h et que tu roule 240 Km/heure, c'est quand même l'équivalent de foncer dans un mur de béton à 150 Km/h....

:cartman:

 

I am going with it will look like a pancake.

240km/h at night is pretty dangerous. 240km/h exceeds safety design specifications for Quebec autoroutes. Even at 3am, i don't think there's an excuse for going 240km/h. It's reckless. Get your adrenaline rush somewhere else -- take up skydiving, or just go to the gym.

 

The law is the law. No sympathy for this guy at all.

 

From the article comments:

 

Les amendes sont rendues beaucoup trop élevées, une société ou l'on ne peu plus rien faire. On se fait prendre a 160 sur l'autoroute et on est considéré comme un malade mental.

 

T'as rien qu'a respecter la loi et pas rouler à 160km/h?

Ton analogie n'est pas du tout comparable. Ce que tu dis là serait l'équivalent de dire qu'on devrait augmenter le nombre d'accidents de la route pour sauver des vies, ce qui n'a aucun rapport avec ce qui est mentionné par Cyrus.

 

@Cyrus: Malheureusement, nous avons trop de gens téméraires dans la population québécoise pour instaurer un système autoroutier ayant comme seule limite le sentiment de sécurité. Et, des chevreuils, aussi.
