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.

      I'm sure there's a thread for this piece of land but too lazy to look.
       
      In Saturday's Gazette a report on a new Preval projet on the former Franciscan church site.
       
      Suspects are apparently already complaining though that's a small piece of the report.
       
       
      MONTREAL - A vast tract of downtown land, left partially empty after the site’s historic Franciscan church was destroyed in a 2010 blaze, could be reinvented as two 18-storey condo towers.
       
      Groupe Prével, the developer that transformed the former Seville theatre near the old Forum into a sold-out multi-phase condo project, has an option to buy part of the site on the south side of René Lévesque Blvd., west of Fort St. and the entrance to Highway 720.
       
      The Prével project — which would include a 330-square-metre public park on part of the site — would require the city of Montreal to change the zoning from institutional to residential.
       
      “We’ve had internal discussions with the planning department and they seem positive about it,” said Jonathan Sigler, a co-founder of the urban condo developer, which has also built the Lowney project in Griffintown.
       
      “But obviously, this is going to go through a public consultation.”
       
      The project comes at a time when the city of Montreal, along with other local muncipalities, is under fire for fast-tracking residential development at the expense of green space and such services as schools and daycares in areas like Griffintown. Sigler said Prével’s project would balance development with the need for green space, by creating the park and maintaining the woods in the back of the site known as the jardin des Franciscains.
       
      “Nothing would be knocked out,” Sigler told The Gazette.
       
      But some residents in nearby Shaughnessy Village have already called on city officials to “firmly oppose the project” and come up with a plan oriented toward better public access to the site instead of for “building condo towers.”
       
      Through the deal with the Franciscans, Prével would acquire only part of the site, which includes two heritage buildings used by commercial tenants. The religious order, which first stepped foot in Quebec nearly 400 years ago, would continue to own these two buildings.
       
      The historic Franciscan church was destroyed in an early-morning fire more than three years ago. News reports said the religious order had ceased holding services at the aging church, and abandoned the building in 2007 because it couldn’t afford the $5 million in needed repairs.

      170-188, boul. René-Lévesque Est

      180 René-Lévesque Est
      Client : Hillpark Capital
      Architecte : NEUF Architect(e)s
      Le 180 René-Lévesque Est est une tour de 21 étages avec deux sous-sols à l’entrée du centre-ville de Montréal ayant une présence marquée parmi les bâtiments voisins de plus faible hauteur. La tour possède une dalle en tréfonds accueillant des arbres matures, ainsi qu’un podium au quatrième étage abritant une piscine pour les usagers de cette tour résidentielle. 
      PRINCIPAUX DÉFIS RELEVÉS :
      Conception d’un radier sur la totalité de l’empreinte du bâtiment en raison de la faible capacité portante du sol;
      Élaboration d’une stratégie de soutènement des terres afin d’éviter les ouvrages souterrains et permettant la reprise en sous-œuvre de deux bâtiments voisins de plus de trois étages.
